Today I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas. It has been such a fun year sharing my work with you and knowing I provide some inspiration to help you with ideas for creating your cards. It has been a fabulous year working with all the variety of exciting products that we can get from Joan's Gardens. My card above is created with a few more new products, that can be pre-ordered from Joan. The stamp on the right is the Memory Box "Winter Collage" (G1830). Isn't it a beautiful stamp. The embossed folder used in the background is the Marianne Design (DS0907). It was cut out at an angle, after embossing, so it could be layered, and would show under the elements I wanted to add to the card. . The poinsettia is a stamp from Memory Box, "Poinsettia Bloom" (G1788) and the small flowers are also a Memory Box stamp "Sakura" (2518). The pretty holly flourish used is the Cheery Lynn "Holly Flourish" (B148). There is a small piece of a Martha Stewart "Gothic Arches" border along the top of the Winter Collage. The images were colored using Prisma pencils and OMS. To complete the card a few beads were added to the flower centers and Kaiser Craft pearls added.
You can order all the products I use from Joan's Gardens. I want to remind you that you can place your orders with Joan through the holidays, but shipping will not resume until January 2.
