Christmas ???

Hi Everybody,

I know, I know ... I am either too early or far too late but I wanted to make this card while there was no pressure to make Christmas cards.  And I have to say I enjoyed the process. 
 I have stayed with the Shabby Chic look and used lots of different techniques on the card.
It is a 7" square which is a size I don't usually make. My preference would be 5x7. I have used a red base card and kept the fold at the top because it stands better that way with all the embellishments.

I created the leaves  from Spellbinders Romantic Vines  and the tree is the Holiday Tree from 2012
The silver charms are from my "Stash" and I thought they would blend will with the white and sage green

The flowers, white leaves, lace and the Angel head are all from Wild Orchid Crafts  and the Snowballs are from AnnaMarie Designs

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  13. Hi, Christina,
    It's stunning! I have to agree with Betty McAlister when she said that, with a couple of adjustments this card could...and should...be used for any occasion. You do shabby chic so well, Christina...I'm so jealous lol.
