"Twas the night before Christmas..."
Each scene was printed onto cream card and parts highlighted with a white gel pen and some glitter glue, before framing with embossed gold card and acetate.
The back of each panel has a verse from the poem printed onto cream card, cut out with nesties, then inked & stamped with a repeated small snowflake in Bundled Sage distress ink.
"And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof,
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St Nicholas came with a bound."
The flowers are made from deep red organza die cut with Tim Holtz' Tattered Florals die and edges singed with a heat tool, then held together with a jewel brad.
"He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot,
A bundle of Toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a pedlar, just opening his pack."
The panels are joined together with book rings threaded through eyelets.
"He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk,
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose!"
Finally, lengths of Christmas-coloured ribbons are tied to the bookrings for added decoration.
