well this is the second to last christmas friday for a while and I still have loads of cards to share. I think I may have to have a christmas friday marathon next Friday to cover a few more off.
back to todays and I thought I would are the very first christmas card I made this year back in May, the festive dies arrived at the same time as the fabulous new Foundations Pearl card so I decided ti tie the two toegther and make this card using all three of the white shades along with a selection of the festive dies.
I stared with vanilla pearl card and cut the stare night background from this backing it with icicle pearl card to give a differential in shade. Next I cut the country cottage set in uncle pearl and foam mounted these ( using quite a few layers) at the bottom of the background.
Next I adde cosmic white PVA dimensional glue as snow on the country cottage die cuts and added a piece of acetate and a frame cut with the stitched lattice shadow box die set. I then added cosmic white PVA as snow on the acetate along with some of the stars that fall away from the background die cut.
Next I cut the poinsettia additions complete petals in vanilla pearl foundation card and added the open petals around these cut in ivory pearl. I then cut the holly die in icicle pearl card and added theses around the farm to place the poinsettias.
This is a deep card but isn't that large so is probable best hand delivered!
