Welcome to my creative space!
It's that time of the year when many of us are busy creating handcrafted Christmas cards. Today I'm sharing a slimline card created with the fabulous S5-464 Merry Filigree die set from the Holiday Medley Collection. I've used non-traditional colors with a lovely purple patterned paper and metallic teal along with neutral beige behind the sentiment and for the flowers. I've also added metal snowflakes and pinecones to embellish.
Amazing Paper Grace provided the dies used in this project.
The intricate sentiment and scrollwork is die cut from metallic cardstock. It cuts easily with these fabulous dies.
I've used premade flowers from Little Birdie Crafts and 49 & Market, that I dry brushed with white gesso for a snowy, wintry feel. The metal snowflakes and pinecones are colored with alcohol ink and art wax.
