Christmas Boofle

This last month has been intense, both work wise and craft wise. Been working on a lot of different projects, long ones. And due to yarn shortage I haven't filled the hexapuff-bowl yet, but there will be coming in some more yarn now this week or the next and then I will be working on them again. But I had to make a little project in the meen time so I get that instant gratification feeling, that little spark that keeps you going. And to celebrate me getting my new subscription, I decided to stitch one thing from the first mag I got. So with no further ado, here is Boofle, he's a cute little ehh dog or bear, doesn't really know. But he is really cute though.



I cross stitched Boofle on 14 count Aida with DMC cotton, silk and effect threads. I then mounted him in a 6"x6" card. The aperture is first embossed with a border from Crafters Companions Ultimate Pro, then cut out with a knife and then I used stickle glitter glue around the edges. On the inside I have stamped the text on a piece of neenah card. I also stamped the little pictures on some neenah card and painted them with my spectrum noir pens. The stamps is from the magazine Make Christmas Cards and the pattern of Boofle is from issue 182 of The World of Cross Stitching.
