Christmas Gramophones

Hey y’all!  I’ve got another Christmas card to share today.  I actually made a batch of these for a group of friends with a common musical interest.  I was waiting to post them here until everyone had time to receive them, but the US-to-UK post sadly did not cooperate. At least the folks who didn’t get them can see them, I suppose.

The little gramophones were stamped onto Shrinky Dink plastic and shrunk, then inked with metallic alcohol inks.  They were attached on top of paper rosettes that were made using the Tim Holtz mini rosette die.

I had a couple of small gifts to include, all on the same theme as the card, which I wrapped in brown paper and stamped with the same Inkadinkado stamp that was used on the Shrinky Dink plastic.

The card and packages were tied together (the card is on the back of the package) using jute cord which was embellished with a Tim Holtz Muse Token.

I hope that everyone who did receive them enjoyed them, and I hope those who didn’t will get them eventually.

That’s it for today.  I hope you all are having a fantastic holiday!
