Blue Spirelli Christmas Card

Instructions

Punch a 2 1/2" scalloped circle from the blue card stock and a 3 1/2" circle from the navy blue card stock.

Wrap the thread around the 2 1/2" circle as follows: Use the iridescent filament for the first layer. Tape one end to the back of the circle, bring the thread to the front through any notch, count clockwise 12 notches and wrap the thread to the back. Bring the thread up one notch clockwise from the starting notch. Continue to wrap the thread all the way around the circle, securing the end of the filament to the back of the circle with tape when you're done. In the same way, use the dark blue metallic thread for the second layer and count forward 10 notches. Use the silver thread for the final layer, counting forward 8 notches.

Layer the 2 1/2" circle on the 3" circle, using double-sided tape to stick them together (glue does not work well for this because of the thread).

Cut a 5 1/4" square from the blue scrapbook paper. Center and glue it onto the card blank.

Cut two of the large Shapeabilities pendants from silver foil. Center and glue the first pendant to the card with the corners pointing the same direction as the card corners. Rotate the second pendant 45 degrees so that the corners are pointing to the center of each side of the card. Center it and glue it on top of the first pendant as shown.

Add the scalloped circles to the center o fthe pendants

Put 2 1/4" x 2" piece of foil through the Xyron. Cut the foil in 1/8" wide strips (16 strips in all). Trim eight of the strips to 1 3/4". Put two 2 1/4" strips in each corner, 1/16" from the edge of the scrapbook paper, one along the vertical edge and the other along the horizontal edge. Add the shorter strips 1/8" inside the longer strips as shown.
