Waiting For Santa

Hello friends,

I am still busy with my Christmas cards and finalizing the last gifts. Time is running out now but I want to share another card with you. My inspiration for this card is from an inspirational picture at The Shabby Tea Room. I always have a soft spot for pink Christmas cards and creating with pink roses and lace are always a joy. I hand drawn the stockings and embellished them with lace, ribbon and bling for a festive feel. To finish off I attached the Christmas stockings to the rose wreath and add a chipboard sentiment.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

Christmas_Joy

The Christmas stockings

Project details:

  • Cream card-stock
  • Shabby designer paper (Unknown)
  • Christmas stocking template
  • Chipboard sentiment
  • Joy Crafts Vintage Borders (6002/0162)
  • Lace
  • Paper roses in different sizes
  • Silver cord
  • Silver gemstones
  • Hug Snug seam binding “Cream”
  • Tim Holtz distress inks “Antique Linen” and “Peeled Paint”
  • Skwiglues “Crystal”

Thank you for visiting today and taking the time to look at my card. Have a wonderful day and happy crafting.

Kind regards,

Amelia
