Erica's Craft Room 25 Days of Christmas - Calendars

Welcome to Erica's Craft Room 25 Days of Christmas,
with 25 Cricut projects a day.
Don't forget to stop by Erica's blog to see 24 more projects today....
and every day in December.

I have been making a lot of cards so for in these 25 days of Christmas so I was happy to come up with something different this time!! It's a Christmas Countdown 'Calendar'. 

I used a dry erase marker to write the number of days until Christmas on the glass of the frame.

Here is the supplies I used to make this card...

- Gypsy Wanderings
- Pink By Design Small Banners set
- cross stitching thread
- Recollections paper
- 8x10 picture frame
- dry erase marker

This was sooo simple to make!! I started off with a piece of Recollections paper with threes and swirls on it as my base. I then cut a "square" using Gypsy Wanderings, and another one slightly larger. I used the small banners stamp set by Pink By Design to make my banner. Then I took some cross stitching thread and twisted it to make burgundy and green "twine" for the banner. I added the 'christmas countdown' title which was cut from a sheet of Recollections paper and adhered it on. I put the frame back together and used a black dry erase marker to write the number of days until Christmas. 

Hope you liked this idea!!
