Day 9 - Spirelli

Well we are coming down the home stretch on my 12 days of Christmas. Today's card doesn't scan very well nor could I get a picture of it so hopefully you can see what its like. Its called spirelli and I have to make 8 for a swap I am in. This is my prototype though I might put some gold around the edges to spice it up a bit.

Basically Spirelli
is wrapping threads around an object. On the card I used 2 different sizes of suns punched out of gold paper and stars punched out of silver paper. wrapped in either silver or gold embroidery thread . You can find more information about this technique here:

I used a stampin up set for this and stamped the moon in silver encore then embossed with clear EP. And gold encore for the saying and clear EP embossed. Stippled (yes I love to stipple) some dark blue marvy pad around for misty sky.
