Hello and welcome to our hop this weekend. A special thanks to Jessica over at Kinderstamp-O for hosting our hop! Our challenge was to create something representing places around the world or other cultures. Well, I think I probably took a different path than others. As I’ve been blessed to travel to so many places around this wonderful world of ours, I decided to create a banner featuring “Merry Christmas” in 10 different countries native language.
My Cricut and Joys of the Season cart were used to cut out the ornament shapes, trees and wreaths. I also cut out a ‘shadow’ of each to mat each ornament. Tim Holtz Distressed inks gave the mats and paper flowers (from Prima) a vintage look. Stickles, one of my favorite embellies, was used on each ornament. Another touch of ‘bling’, a snowflake metal charm attached to the bottom of each ornament. Lastly, a swatch of grosgrain and golden thin ribbon make it all come together to form the banner. This was such a fun project to make.
So . . . Merry Christmas from . . . Melkin Yelidet – Ethopia, Glaedelig Jul – Denmark, Sretan Bozic – Croatia, Feliz Navidad – Mexico, Merry Keshmish – Navajo Native American, Frohliche Weihnachten – Germany, Kala Christouyennal – Greece, Joyeux Noel – France, Hristos Se Rodi – Serbia, Buone Feste Natalizie – Italy
