Merry Christmas from The Hens' Den

I just have to tell you how much I love Charlie and Cheri and how much they do for us Hens' Den ladies.  Cheri is going to be moving on and we will miss her terribly and I wish her all the best.  I was so happy when Charlie sent me my package of My Mind's Eye All is Bright papers and embellishments to work with this month.

Cutting Directions:
1.  Cut green cardstock 4 1/4 X 5 1/2"

4.  Die cut three different sizes of ornaments using plain cardstock for the larger one.
5.  Cut the larger ornament out of the silver paper as well.
6.  Die cut fancy border for the top edge of your card.
Assembly Directions:
1.  Take the silver ornament and cut just below the bottom of the top part of the ornament.  This paper is sticky backed so stick it to your ornament.
2.  Add adhesive to cover the rest of the ornament and lay your twine in rows alternating color as desired.
3.  I usually leave extra over hanging the edge and then trim around it from behind with my best scissors.
4.  Die cut your banner from the acetate and then run through your Cuttlebug embossing folder.
5.  Punch holes in all three ornaments and string with twine.
6.  Layer the red chevron paper over the green cardstock and glue down.  
7.  Glue down the white notebook paper 3/4" down from the top of the card and 1" in from the left edge.
8. Cut acetate banner 4" long and adhere a little bit below the white notebook paper and 1/2" in from the left.
9.  Cut fancy border strip 4 X 5 1/4" and adhere across the notebook paper and over top of the acetate.  Staple into place.
10.  Adhere the smallest ornament under the corner of the acetate in the left corner of the chevron paper.
11.  Adhere the medium sized ornament just near the top of the fancy border.
12.  Adhere twine ornament on an angle under the medium ornament.
13.  Place Merry Christmas sticker lining up to the right edge of the card and at the bottom of the chevron paper.

I love this card a lot. Twine is so much fun. I can't believe all the fun things you can do with right now. I love how you embossed the plastic.
