I have three more of my flags for my Christmas Banner to show you today, I have only two more to make and it is finished, it has been enjoyable for me to complete them over the holiday period, as I have received wonderful inspiration from the Christmas cards that I received.
These are Flags 16, 17 and 18. though I have stopped counting now.
The Reindeer is sticky-back canvas and covered in Silver glitter, this was on a card, as soon as I saw it I knew it was going on a Flag.
I love to create texture on my Bg, I made this effect by using my staple Gesso and water-down distress inks.
I made a scene, by adding some rub-ons (bg reindeer) and snowflakes, all coloured up in distress inks.
This one I dry embossed the Bg and added some lace and the MB snowflake die.
The Bells have been in my Christmas box for years, they were always too big for a card, but as you can see perfect for my Flags.
I treated the bells in the same way of dry embossing, then using different inks to create the effect I wanted.
The NOEL sentiment and Poinsettia are little trinkets that were in the same box.
You can just see the Holly that I fussy-cut as foliage under the ribbon.
And the last one.
From a Christmas card, I just placed the elements onto my Flag, with some additional touches such as a Christmas serviette mod-podged onto the Bg.
And now it will be displayed each year when my banner is up, and I will always know it was from a card that Lai-Yoke made and sent to me.
I did not pick up the true colour in my photo unfortunately.
Here is Lai-Yoke's card.

Thank you Lai-Yoke, I hope you like how I have used your elements.
