Ok guys so the papers are the new release from the ever awesome Maja- i LOVE this release! so cute!!! esp the gnomes which i cant bring myself to use they are that cute!!!♥ The tree is colour in Copics and i have used some Perfect Pearls to highlight where we would have our white lights. I used to be ALL about colour for Christmas but last year had a change and now its the traditional colours, and white lights. Think with us being in Australia now i like the white lights as reminds me of frost..or maybe ive just grown up lol
The dies are a mix of Go Kreate, Magnolia, Memory box and Tim Holtz. The snow which i think is super cool and ♥ love playing with is from a Snow Tex pen. You dab it on , heat and bam you have snow!
I used some glitter pens on the baubles on the tree. On the tree and the stocking i used red beads. To finish off I used some shabby seam ribbon and attached a little white bell...as what is Christmas without bells!
Now this is all what our Christmas is about , but also the post! We are constantly posting things back home to England, so to add that element in I stamped postage marks around the image and added some 'Shabby White ' Fran-tage to the outside of the card to add a bit more to the snow effect. Lastly some rose rhinestones and we are done.
Hope you like my card! ♥
