Christmas Countdown - Day 8 - Advent calendar part 1

Today I will show you the first 12 pieces of an advent calendar. All pieces are QuicKutz die cuts. All pieces are 2" square. During December, they will find their place on a metal cookie sheet; staying because each piece has a magnet on the back... I hope you enjoy. The bell has alcohol inks dabbed onto the die cut to create a copper look.
Used some gell pens on the gingerbread people.
Die cut the sled (minus the Santa) twice and wedged in some backless buttons between the two pieces.
Used a "snow writer" pen to create the snow in the snowglobe.
Found this fabulous metallic handmade paper in Santa Fe. Made perfect bells!
Used Versamark and clear embossing powder to emboss the holly leaves. Added glass glitter to the holly berries. Rubbed antique gold rub and buff on the edge of the piece.
This is an exclusive QK die made for Scrapy Land.
A piece of paper that I fringe cut with scissors changes the plain bird shape to a Cardinal!
A large glittered brad holds the snowflake pieces together.
The background is debossed and inked, and the reindeer is sporting a green star on his hat.
The nativity pieces fit perfectly on this size square. Don't forget to ink the edges of your pieces to create some depth.
The gingerbread house has been embellished with Stickles and Liquid Pearls.

Stay tuned tomorrow for part 2. Don't forget to leave a comment for the random drawing of Printed Treasures printable fabric!

Be Creative!
