It's the first day of Christmas and I can finally show you one of the little Christmas projects that I've been working on, an advent calendar for the boyf. I can't say too much, as he does read my blog :) but it starts with a hint as to how many days he has left to buy my present! (though I have to admit, he's beaten me to it this year...)
The front and back panels of the calendar were put together in Photoshop, using a Mari Koegelenberg template from The Digichick website, some beautiful Karla Dudley fonts and brushes and a snowflake brushset that I am just in love with. I cut a template for the top flaps and used that to cut the top layer, the template had the fold lines printed. Then I double-sided taped each and every line, I didn't want any gaps or lifts, and held my breath as I matched the top and bottom layers. It was then mounted onto a sheet of A4 black card, I printed a title panel for the side and detailed with some matching gosgrain ribbon. I'll post some more pics of the bottom layer later in the month.
