Christmas – Shabby Chic Style

Hello friends,

A Christmas card for the new challenge at Double D Challenges. The theme for this fortnight is “What is Your Christmas Style”. Do you love Traditional, Modern, Elegant, All DD_ChristmasStyleWhite, Vintage?  Please add what style your card is in your blog post when entering the challenge.  The team have created beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile and as always there is a lovely prize to win!

I love the shabby chic style and of course lots of pink and bling for Christmas. I decided to use pink rose designer paper for my background and then layered it on kraft card-stock to add a rustic element. I added a kraft die cut wreath as frame for my reindeer picture. I attached the  wreath with a bow and roses to the leaves and lace border. The wreath is embellished with lots of gemstones and pearls for sparkle. I finished off with a sentiment and silver stars. I love the soft colours and shabby chic/rustic look of this Christmas card.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

    I dearly love your wreath, Amelia, and the dear it frames is so sweet. I knew your card would be beautiful and if it wasn’t shabby chic I would have fallen over. You do this style so well and it’s gorgeous!
