BBB-05 - Deck The Halls!

:

For this month’s Bringing Back Beautiful Challenge, use beauty in stamping to create an accent piece for a table, a mantle, a decoration or any kind of home décor. ‘Tis the season for stamping and entertaining –so let’s see if you can create a match made in heaven by using both!



I chose to create place cards for a Christmas table using the gorgeous Poinsetta and Boxwood set. These were really easy to make and can easily be mass produced! I used the In Spades Pendants template by Spellbinders for the base (cut it in half) and the Long Classic Rectangles die. The poinsetta was colored with Distress Inks. I didn`t put any names on them yet, as I plan to use them for a Christmas Dinner:)



I even made a napkin ring to match the place cards... Super easy!

Link up your Bringing Back Beautiful creation Here to enter. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword BBB05. You have until December 31st to enter! As we unveil our challenge for next month, we’ll share our True Beauties – those card makers who wowed us with this challenge! Winners will be featured on the Flourishes Blog and will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog!
