~Christmas Pendant~

Hey everyone. Today is another fun fun day on the eCraft blog. We were asked to use a sky element this week how fun is that! But we are also doing Christmas all month using Pink By Design stamps! I LOVE these stamps. They pair so nicely with the eCraft Machine!

So here is my project for this week...

Here are the Instructions:

With your pressure on 4 and tabs set to off cut the star with the eCraft. Using make a slightly larger star and cut with the eCraft. Using eCraftshop pro make a triangle base. Cut cereal board and pattern paper using the same size triangle. The pattern paper was cut with a pressure setting of 4 (blade cap on, tabs off and multi cut turned off) The cereal board was cut with a pressure setting of 3 and the blade cap was off, tabs were at 3 and width was at 2) On a piece of white cardstock stamp Sewing Backgound onto the paper using walnut stain. Hands draw a banner on the back of the stamped image and cut out. (You could also use an svg for this) Outline the sentiment image with brown stickles, lay aside to dry. Add star to pendant using dimensional adhesive. Use crochet cotton and tie a knot in the button holes leaving the knot in the back of the button. Next using liquid adhesive apply the buttons to the pendant. I like to lay them randomly. Apply vintage ribbon and twine across the top of the pendant using no sew. Next using beads and a stick pin make a dangling jewel. Punch a hole with small hole punch and insert the jump ring into the hole.

Voila you are all finished.
