Good morning to you and thanks for popping by again, your visits are most welcome.
I think this is turning into a christmas card blog as that is all I seem to be making at the moment - I'm just glad I started earlier this year.
I've used one of the Joanna Sheen Giordano 'Father Christmas and Friends' decoupage sheets which I was lucky to buy when they were on offer at half price and an absolute bargain. I know decoupage can be a bit time consuming and fiddly but it is worth it as the image really comes to life with all the layers (just a pity you can't see it in this photo).
I wanted to keep this snowy and wintery looking so no designer papers. Instead I used one of the fabulous Die'sire Embossalicious embossing folders. I am starting to build up a collection of these folders in different sizes and this one is the 8"x8" Grande Dots.
The sentiment is one of the LOTV christmas grungy messages and I used Tattered Lace 'christmas florals' die for the holly (coloured with Promarkers) and poinsettia and Memory box 'fabulous phlox' for the foliage (cut from gold mirri-card). The small flowers, ribbon and pearls are all from my stash.
