Today I am using SpellbindersS4-295 Lacey Squares die template and I created a Christmas wall hanging. You could create this wall hanging and keep it for yourself or it would be great for gift giving too.
To start I used the Grand Calibur™ from Spellbinders™ and S4-295 Lacey Squares die #2, #4, S4-301 Labels Sixteen die #3; S4-286 2010 Snowflake Pendants to create several die cuts. For the S4-295 Lacey Squares die #2, #4 I cut/embossed four pieces each. I used the S4-286 2010 Snowflake Pendants and cut/embossed each of the snowflakes three times.Next I inked the larger Lacey Squares die cuts with Vintage Photo Distress Ink from Ranger. The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye Holly Jolly Collection.I inked all of the other die cuts using Antique Linen Distress Ink from Ranger.The letters for Noel are from My Mind's Eye Blue Lush Line and I added a little shading with Copic markers. I brushed all of the snowflakes with Gem-Tac from Beacon Adhesives and applied Clear Chunky Glitter.Next it was time to start putting all of the pieces together for the wall hanging. I used White 3D Foam Squares from SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES By 3L™ to add dimension in between each of the paper layers.I also added a few rhinestones from the Blue Lush Line from My Mind's Eye and some seam binding from Holly Jolly to tie off the ends of the lace. The piece of lace was from my aunt Gail--thanks--I love it! The S4-295 Lacey Squares set includes five die templates and you can cut/emboss and stencil with them. I love the lacey edges!!

Supplies
Paper: My Mind's Eye Holly Jolly Collection; WorldWin White
Ink: Ranger Antique Linen, Vintage Photo Distress Ink; Copic Markers
Dies: SpellbindersGrand Calibur™, S4-295 Lacey Squares die #2, #4, S4-301 Labels Sixteen die #3; S4-286 2010 Snowflake Pendants
