holly jolly

There is a lot of sadness surrounding me nowadays.
But there are also better moments when I am walking down my  memory lane and thinking of good times in my life. 
I can remember my childhood when I was waiting for Christmas Eve to come.
There were also some very old, beautiful tree ornaments which belonged to my Great Grandmother.
I was inspired by them when I altered this craft envelope.
I transferred the images from the napkins onto the tags with gesso. 
Stenciled some texture paste, added  some stamping, heat embossed some snowflakes. There was also some inking and misting used. 
I am going to use the envelope as a package for a book I bought for a Christmas present. 

I would like to join the following challenges:
stampsandstencils: remember-remember
thatscraftychallenges: tag your'e it
thatcraftplace: kraft
brownsugarchallenge: no patterned paper

  9. I am sorry to hear that you are saddened these days. Sometimes I am most creative when I am in that pit. I think that might be the same for you, as this is a truly gorgeous project! Every detail is delightful. I think it is so clever to alter an envelope as a "gift wrap." The three tags with the transfers are fabulous! This is magazine worthy, my friend! My Grandma's favorite song, The Lily of the Valey reminds us that in sorrow He's our comfort... Hugs, Autumn
