TWINKLING CHRISTMAS CARDS

Hello Friends,
I needed a supply of Christmas cards so my 
range filled the bill beautifully 
I created 16 cards which I have paired in a frame
to save on an extra extra long blog post ...
all my cards are 14.5cm square & by adding 
some bling, embossed papers, flowers lace & pretty ribbons 
it makes them all a little bit individual 













I found these papers so versatile & enjoyed fussy cutting the ephemera 
my hope is you are inspired to create some cards to share 
wishing you a safe happy & blessed Christmas 
Happy Scrapping

CHRISTMAS FRAME

hello friends
 have been playing in my craft room with the gorgeous 
Christmas papers from MEGS GARDEN 
this range is titled 
'Twinkling Christmas' 
to go with the theme I made a reverse canvas 
& added miniature fairy lights
It was fun creating something a little different 


I made the frame with texture paste through a stencil 
then painted with gesso & 
added some jacaranda blue mixed paint to highlight the texture 
fussy cut many elements from the ephemera sheets & papers & adhered them to chipboard to give them strength .. 
the Christmas trees are from my stash. 
Adhered the background paper & all trims then added the lights.

Flowers, flourishes, silver leaves & sparkles completed the scene
