UKS Swap

I have taken part in a swap on UKS to create a Christmas Wall Hanging. It's not something that I would normally do and I can't wait to see all the finished sqaures together. So here are all of my 12 squares together.

I started off my painting the edges of the chipboard pieces (they each measure 3"x3") then I cut some leftover Christmas papers slightly smaller. I cut some acetate squares a bit smaller again and stamped using acrylic paints onto it with a snowflake stamp. I used a flourish Inchie stamp for the middle and then sewed the acetate over the top. Finally I punched some snowflakes out of some silver card and printed the words from my computer, inked the edges and applied some gems. I really enjoyed doing them and while they are not what I originally planned I am very pleased with them, just hope that everyone else likes them too when they are received!
I also thought I would share a non Christmassy Card I made a while ago. I am not a huge card maker but I thought this was quite pretty!

I just love butterflies and pom pom ribbon at the moment!!

Thanks for looking!
