I want to wish all my blogging friends a very Merry Christmas. I have received cards from around the world and want to thank you for all your gorgeous creations. I cherish each and every one of them. Are you all ready for Christmas Day? I have been having lots of fun with all my grandkids, my son and daughter. We have over a foot of snow and the grandkids from San Diego are having so much fun in the snow. They helped grandpa clean off the driveways then played in the huge piles of snow. This is my favorite time of the year.
This is a 5x7 inch card. I used the new Joy! Crafts Corners in on the top of the card. In the center of the card is the new Joy! Crafts Doily. Within this doily I added one of the My Favorite Things "Decorative Ovals Doily Duo" die cuts. The sentiment is from the Our Daily Bread "Sentiments Collection"; it was silver embossed. The sentiment reads "Friends are Kisses Blown to us by Angles". I had a piece of design paper that has silver embossing on the background, so have coordinated things to match. The sentiment was attached with dimensional tape.
Below the Joy! Crafts doily, I added the Joy! Crafts "Flourish", which ended up being mostly covered up, but it is a beautiful flourish. The roses were created with the Spellbinders "Bitty Blossoms" dies; they were sponged with Spun Sugar Distress Ink prior to rolling them. The pretty leaves behind the roses are the Joy! Crafts Leaves. I added some Encore silver ink and silver embossed them. The pretty silver flourish is the Memory Box "Elegant Scrollwork" flourish; it was die cut using mirror silver card stock. Two flourishes were die cut, cut a part, then tucked in behind the flowers. A few Cheery Lynn "Wreath Strip" pieces were also die cut using the silver mirror card stock and tucked in. To add a little more elegance to the card, I added white Kaiser Craft Pearls.
