Advent Calendar

I've been wanting to make an advent calendar for quite some time. The Fun 'n' Flair's DT challenge this week was for us to make an advent calendar. I am using Miss Shayla at Christmas Time. It is the perfect stamp for me to use for my project.


I stamped the Christmas stocking on a variety of patterned paper and cut it out. I then pieced the stockings together. The numbers were all stamped onto the cuffs. I added some flowers and flourishes to the bottom corner. The Merry Christmas sign was cut out using Nestabilities dies. I then stamped the Christmas tree and adhered it onto the flower. This has been such a fun project and I am so happy that I finally have an advent calendar to use for Christmas this year. 


Here's a close-up of the stockings and flowers.


I would like to thank Julie at Cosmo Cricket for the beautiful papers from her giveaway. It is called Art Angel
