Hello, Crafty bloggers.
Welcome to my blog and a big thank you to all my new followers.
I hope you are well?
I am feeling sad. My eleven year old Pug named George is very poorly.
To take my mind of things I have made a shaped Christmas card. My second one this year. Lol!!!
I have chosen Cosy Christmas Tilda and masked Cosy Christmas Apple Basket from the Winter Wonderland Collection 2013.
I have die cut a Spellbinders Nestibilites Opulent Oval with Neenah cardstock and stamped Cosy Christmas Tilda and Cosy Christmas Apple Basket from Sirstampalot onto the oval with Memento rich cocoa ink.
I have coloured the images with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.
For the shaped card I have used 300gsm white Conqueror card and GoKreate large frames frilly #2.
The papers are Maja Design Vntage Summer Basics from Live & Love Crafts.
The doily is Cheery Lynn Nautical Wheeler. I have inked around the edge with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink.
The pretty lace is from Ebay and can be found HERE.
I have used Doohickey dies. Spruce firs and lovely fence. I have inked the edges of the dies with tea dye distress ink and coated both with Snow-Tex from Live & Love Crafts.
I stamped Magnolia Vintage Merry Christmas Postmark from Sirstampalot with Memento rich cocoa ink, cut around it and adhered it to the removable centre piece of the Nautical Wheeler doily.
I have also inked around the edges of both the sentiment and centre piece with tea dye distress ink.
The wooden stars on the bottom of the card are from Live & Love Crafts.
I have used a selection of flowers for the arrangement.
They are blue Kort & godt rolled roses and chrysanthemums from The Ribbon Girl.
A 25mm ivory wild rose from Wild Orchid Crafts and marshmallow frosted berries from
For the foliage between the arrangement I have used Cheery Lynn pine branches and Martha Stewart woodland branches. I inked the edges of the branches with tea dye distress ink.
I have adhered a 5mm white pearl to the centre of each of the rolled roses.
Here is a close up of Cosy Christmas Tilda with Apple Basket.
Do you think those apples look good enough to eat?
I sprinkled Frantage shabby white embossing enamel from Live & Love Crafts and adhered a few 2mm white pearls around the image. I have used ArtDeco glamour dust on Tilda's pom-pom and dotted Tilda's cheeks with a Inkssentials opaque white pen.
Inside the card is decorated with Maja Design paper and a Spellbinders Opulent Oval.
I hope you like what you see?
