Christmas Charger Plate

 Hi there!  Happy New Year!
I have a few projects to share over the next couple days.  I made this charger for my parents in addition to the gift cards that we bought them for Christmas.  I was blurfing a few weeks ago, and found this cute Altered Charger idea on Arlene Cuevos' blog. I purchased a set of 4 gold chargers at Target and got to work on Christmas Day! 

 The pine all around the edge is a stamp from Kitchen Sink Stamps from Winter Cardinal.  I stamped in a circle and after stamping all the parts to the pine (4 separate images to make 1 full image) x's 10 times, I cut it all out.  I actually took these pics of the kids on Christmas Eve and just printed them out on regular cardstock.  I layered them, added some background paper, a few ephemera items and went to town w/ my glue!  The ribbon is sparkly ribbon from My Favorite Things from last year maybe?  I don't know, I've had it a while.
Have a wonderful 2011!
