Advent calendar to stand or hang

hi everyone, warm welcome to all followers old and new.

well I have been at this for days, it has that much small die cutting.. long time for I do another..

started with piece of card about 8"x 8" scored  at 1"1/2 . then went to the left of this on my MS scored again, so it makes a channel 1/8 , this I decorated with thin ribbon..
used spellbinder classic square die cut 25 in 3 colours, papers are from scraps MB cut with size down plain and scallop.
attach to red / white / green/ white matts cutting each a little larger. in-between the white and green I glued the hanging part ( think they are pipe cleaner) children's.
next I cut Advent calendar, on each is holly and flower,  then added small embellishments.

  2. Your advent calendar looks fabulous, Pam. So festive, and well worth the time and effort you put into it with all the intricate die cutting x

  3. WOW Pam what a piece of work. Dedication is what I call it, dedication to a work of art. Got me thinking now but I feel it will be started and put to the side so better not thinking. Love the Cheery Lynn Merry Christmas die, have to get that. Thank you for showing this I really love it.
