Christmas lanterns

I used the Tim Holtz vintage Noel die and Sizzix nested squares die and cut them out using glitter paper. I painted  plain wooden plaques and wood knobs and glued the two together to make the lantern base.

Christmas wall hanging

For this wall hanging I took a plain white canvas and painted it green and after it was dry I used a Tim Holtz layering stencil for the background. Next, I used distress inks on a piece of manila file folder and then embossed it using the Tim Holtz Christmas embossing folder. I then used the following Tim Holtz dies: Window, mini cardinal, garland, crescent moon and stars, stacked boxes. I cut the Christmas tree out with my Cricut.

I thought I would go ahead and enter this into Inspiration Emporium's Christmas in June challenge since I like how it turned out.
