Belli Challenge #41 Thanksgiving/Christmas Table Decorations

Today is Wednesday and we all know that is Belli Challenge Day!!! The Challenge this week is to make any type of table decorations for a Thankgiving day or Christmas table top. I made a votive cover for a Christmas table. I used Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip, Cardstock Vellum and Basic Gray's Figgy Pudding papers. I used 12 x 12 Riding Hood Red paper and cut 2 strips at 3 1/4" x 12". I then scored at 3", 6" and 9". The middle fold should be a Mountain fold and the other 2 should be valley folds. Mountain = Stands Up, Valley Fold = fold away I used the 1 3/4" circle punch on the Riding Hood Red cardstock. Then layered a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock on the inside and punched it with the 1 3/8" circle punch. I then stamped the deer from Winter Post in Chocolate Chip ink onto the cardstock Vellum. I then punch the deer out with the 1 3/4" circle punch and layered in on the inside of the window. On the outside panels, I layered Baja Breeze cardstock cut to 3" x 2 7/8" and then Basic Grays Figgy Pudding Trees cut to 2 3/4 x 2 3/4". I then stacked Stampin Up's Felt Snowflakes and attached with a Blue Bling Brad. The words I stamped in Chocolate Chip are from Stampin Ups To You and Yours stamp set. I then taped together only the 2 outside panels.
