A Little Christmas Inspiration with Vanessa Rae

Hi there Crafty Friends,

Well Christmas is nearly upon us and at the time of writing this, I'm up to my eyes with moving house, just finsished packing, especially the hoards of craft stash, I have!!!..Have already managed to clear out bags and bags of old stuff, but will need to try and do more... Will be busy unpacking and  organising new house when this goes 'live'. Will be back to 'normal' craft mode soon!!

I'm here today as it's my turn for some Digi Doodle Studios inspiration. For this I am using Vanessa Rae, and have created this traditional Christmas card...


On a 7x7 scalloped white card blank, I matt and layered First Edition 'The Gift of Christmas' complimenatry papers onto Craft Buddy red non-shed glitter card, along with red ribbon border. The image, I printed onto watercolour card, coloured and added glitter for effect. I die cut out and layered on the same glitter card, which I die cut too. I decorated with a die cut Dawn Bibby Creations poinsettia, blossom stamen, berry sprigs (added glitter glue on berries) and twigs, finishing off with die cut sentiment, gems and ribbon bow.
