To You From Me

Hello everyone how are you. Today I have another christmas card, I'm so sorry if you are sick of seeing them now & we will be done soon lol. Although I have to say I'm really enjoying making them this year & I dont want to stop lol...but I will dont worry. Its even harder when the design companies like Maja Design & Pion Design make such beautiful papers you just want to use them all the time!!

So here is my DT card for the Noor Design UK Blog using just Maja design paper, even the image is from the papers ;-)
All links to items used at the bottom of this post.
Arn't those snowman so darn cute!! I've used Maja Design I Wish 6x6 collection, inked & distressed all edges & then machine sewn them.

I made 2 bows with seam binding, added some scrapiniec behind & a bit of bling in the centre & ta da.......pretty ;-)
The Merry Christmas For A Dear Friend I cut from Pion Design Borders sheet.

I added some cute Penguins using a Joy Crafts die, I cut them out with scarps from the Maja Design pad & then added pimice stone ink to define them a bit.
The Tag is Magnolia Aspen collection & I stamped onto kraft card & inked the edges a bit, added a charm & some waxed cord.

Now for the image I fussy cut the snowmen out of a sheet of paper from the 6x6 pad, on this sheet the birds are also on it. So I used that side with the birds to put behind my window & then added the snowmen. The window was a bit too long so I shortened it just a little.

For the snowy effect (which looks soooo much better IRL) I added Structure Paste then whilst the paste is still wet I sprinkle glitter over it.
I've not edited this photo at all as brightness is what kills the glitter showing on photo' to show the glitter up I've left it un-edited.

I added 2 different kinds of lace, I love tulle but hate cutting into it lol......though I'm also glad I did when I see it on a project.
Behind the window is a Little Darlings die which is also replicated inside to write a message on.

As always inside is decorated to match the front, I do all this at the same time rather than have to go back & do insides, its easier to do it all at once as it takes just a few minutes.
The flowers are WOC & I've added metal leaves & the 2 centre flowers came with the Magnolia Club Kit Volume 12.
Also added white gesso here & there for an extra snowy effect ;-)

Thank you so so much for stopping by.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
