This is my very first post here AND my very first attempt at a paint can.
I stamped the paper with a few of the $1 stamps I got at Michael's (LOVE those!). You can't tell but I embossed Santa's hat with irridescent ice embossing powder (Stampin' Up!) and also colored his beard in white.
After I adhered the stamped paper, I added a paper trim to the top and bottom. I LOVE that patterned paper (Chatterbox). I bought a ton of it at my scrapbook store and used it on my (65) Christmas cards. I had a few strips left over and couldn't resist.
Then I added some green ribbon ever few sections to add a little "something".
I grabbed a few bushes of flowers that were on sale at JoAnn's for $1 a piece, stuck them in a styerfoam (Sp?) cube and then bunched in some yellow tissue paper to make it look like the poinsettas I already had on my fireplace.
I was pleased with the outcome. Thanks for looking!
