Frosty Friends

Before I get to my "Frosty Friends" post... I wanted to let you know that there are 6 individual flower silhouette stamps that were released today from the Kim Hughes line by CHF. These stamps are available mounted or unmounted and are similar images to others in the KH line (just resized). So... if you are a brick & mortar store and your customers ONLY want woodmounted images OR if you like several of Kim's floral sets but can't afford to buy them all at once --- this might be a great option for you! This is where you can see them along with some beautiful design team samples: CHF Gallery - Flower and Plant Individual Images. They are available for purchase here: Kim Hughes Collection. :)

OK. Now back to today's project! Have you guys seen Lauren Meader's newest venture? She has designed some really awesome templates that you can purchase from Papertrey Ink (My Timeless Templates) and then print directly onto card stock. I made this chipboard ornament and wanted to gift it in a unique way. The image is from a soon-to-be-released Friendly Kritters image called Frosty Friends (available October 21st at CHF).

This is my modified version of Lauren's template (FOR KEEP{sake}). My ornament was too wide to view it completely with the original front window, so I cut a wider window and inserted a Clear Card Sheet inside. I lined the inside of my box with wood-grain patterned paper by Cosmo Cricket.

This is the back of my ornament. The sentiment will be released along with the Frosty Friends image next Tuesday. I bent the stamp and placed it on my acrylic block to create a curved 'sentiment band'.
Here's a close-up of this sweet Friendly Kritters image, colored with Copic markers. I covered the front with Glossy Accents and then used a copper Krylon pen to color the top and edges of the ornament.

To hang my ornament, I added ribbon and a button to the top and placed it through a slit I made in the top of my box.
