Hello my sweet paper crafting friends. I've created this sweet Christmas card featuring the beautiful ScrapBerry's Once Upon a Winter and Happy Holiday's Collections. I’ve blended my shabby mixed media style with this adorable image from the Once Upon a Winter collection.
I'm up on the ScrapBerry's blog HERE.

Tips and Techniques
I’ve used ScrapBerry’s Magnolia and Clove flowers edged with snowflake paste as the focal point of the cluster and edged some of the background paper layers with snowflake paste as well. The ScrapBerry’s Shabby Ribbon ties up into a gorgeous bow.
I tucked in a Once Upon a Winter snowflake and holly brad next to the sentiment. The background is stenciled to add texture using a blend of whipped spackle and super fine glitter. It’s a great way to get the sparkle of glitter without the mess. To add more texture, the edges of the paper layers are inked then distressed.
The holly image is fussy cut then edged with snowflake paste. The shimmer on the berries is added with a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. There are two more holly cut outs tucked into the flower cluster as well.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you’ve been inspired to grab your ScrapBerry’s Christmas paper to create cards for the special people in your life.
