Stitched framelits Merry Christmas banner...

Merry Christmas!!! Only 36 sleeps to go!!! I hope you have started your Christmas shopping:)
I made this banner using the 8cm and 5cm stitched framelits die and stayed with the red theme of Karen Burniston's November challenge.
I added some embellishments using the holly from the Sizzix decorative strips Christmas bells die and some lovely little berry shaped jewels.

The snowflakes embellishment are from the Sizzix reindeer framelits set. I used a die from Karen Burniston's stitched framelits circle and labels set to create the cream glittering 'bauble' and just snipped one of the label sections off each one.
The alphabet die for this banner was the Sizzix bee's knees set which I layered with 3 different colours to make the lettering stand out more when hung on the wall.
I also a larger banner using the 11cm and the 8cm stitched framelits dies.

The alphabet for this banner was from the Sizzix serif essentials die set which I doubled up to create a shadow effect.
I enjoyed making these so much that I'm going to make a smaller one with just the 5cm die to replace my 'designated be nice to mum zone' banner I have in my craft area. Hmmm I think I'll go do that now:))
