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.
Tattered  poinsettia and holly branch  by Tim Holtz  Sizzix.
"Merry Christmas" cheery Lynn.

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.

Not surprised it took you so long Pam - certainly a labour of love. At least you can bring it out every year! Gorgeous creation.

Such a lot of detailed and painstaking work on this - brilliant but I can imagine you wouldn't want to go into production making them. Worth the effort though for a one-off which can be used year after year.

Fab project Pam, love your colours. Have to own up to having bought the die but just don't have enough space or your patience at the moment to manage the bits. Lovely inspiration from you as always. xx Flora
