Christmas Countdown !!

Morning guys..

  my turn for the Little Claire friday project and I have a Christmas Countdown for you to make using  the Christmas Snowmen stamp set !!

You will need:
green, white and black card
Dovecraft Back to Basic Christmas paper
Die cut letters and numbers
wooden peg
red ribbon
3d foam tape

1: Cut a  piece of cardboard 5 1/2" x 8 1/4" and two pieces of your pattern paper one 3" x 5" and 5 1/4" x 5" and then glue to front.

 2: Cut a 4 1/4" scalloped circle in green card, a 3 1/2" plain circle of white card and another one 3"

3: Stamp your snowmen onto the 3" white circle, colour in and then mount onto the 3 1/2" circle, then mount onto the green scallop circle. Now add a black wiggly line to edge and some stickles.

4: Just lay your scallop circle onto the front of your covered board and glue your die cut letters around top. Don't worry if you haven't any die cut letters because you could stamp or hand write them instead. Now draw a wiggly black line all round edges.

5: Now attach green scallop circle to front using 3d foam tape.
6: Cut 12 pieces of green card  3 1/2" x 3" and 24 pieces of white card  2 3/4" x 2 3/4".

7: Glue a piece of white card to the front and back to each of the 12 of green card leaving a just over 1/2" at top. Now draw a black wiggle line round edge of white card.

8: Now add die cut numbers 1 - 12

8: Flip them over and add die cut number 13-24

9: Cover front of wooden peg with pattern paper and add a big red ribbon bow

10: All you have to do now is clip your countdown numbers to the front of your board and it is complete !!

Here's another one using the other snowman stamp in the set and using red card instead of green.

 You don't have to make a Christmas countdown, why not a birthday countdown or holiday one ??    You're sure to find the right stamp for any occasion on the Little Claire website !!
