Spirelli Christmas

I haven't used spirelli for a while, so I trotted it out for this card. The green piece with the ornament was actually a leftover snippet. I had stamped/embossed the ornament two times, and when I centered the other for the diecut, there wasn't  enough left to center this one, too. So, I filled the space with some white twine and the spirelli technique.  The sentiment is stamped and matted on snippets as well.

Another tag

Here's another tag inspired by the 25 Days of Christmas Tags at Tracey McNeely's blog.  This particular one was inspired by Lindsey Larsen's bold graphic HO Ho HO tag on Day 14.  (Lindsey is with the Concord & Ninth DT)


  1. Very unusual card Sandy - Spirelli takes me back a few years! And your end result is absolutely lovely.

  6. Awesome string art and also a great layout for your very festive Christmas card. I love it in the traditional colors too.

  7. That string art technique is fabulous here. I totally balances the Xmas bauble image and looks fab.
    My grandaughter and grandson are making snowflake string art for everyone for Xmas. Their Dad cut wood bases and they are busy "stringing".
