Hello everyone!!! Welcome to my blog!
I hope everyone's Christmas Preparations are going well. Luckily for me, mine are done so I can relax for a few days and create something for an occasion other than Christmas.
The card I'm sharing with you today could be used for a Wedding. It was made from the gorgeous Pion Design papers that I won just recently!
As you can see, not a lot of colour to this one. I think after all the Christmas cards I made I am coloured out!! hehe! There is actually a very subtle pattern on the top layer of paper but, unfortunately, the photos don't show it very well. You can see it a little better in the next one but you really have to look closely.
The papers were distressed and then I misted the top layer and manipulated it a bit to get it to the shape you can see and I also made a few tears which were then rolled as well. The idea for this came from Patricia Basson. She makes the most beautiful scrapbook pages where she rolls and manipulates her papers in the most beautiful ways. I love her work and urge you to go and take a look. You can find her blog HERE.
The cluster is made up of a selection of flowers but I'm afraid I can't tell you where they came from as I've had these for a while. I've mixed some tiny pearl stamens and some gauze in there too. The two clusters are almost a mirror image of each other. The strip across the centre of the card is simply another strip of the same paper over which I've added a strip of gauze and a twine bow.
The inside was decorated with another sheet of the Pion papers. I fussy cut the lovely little frame which can be used for the sentiment and then just border punched a couple of strips from the same sheet and adhered them top and bottom.
I have to say, I'm really pleased with the way this one turned out!! I think I'm going to be sorry to give this one away!! Ah well!!! What must be done, must be done!
I want to thank Pion Design again for their wonderful Give-away. These papers are absolutely stunning and I'm loving working with them. Thank you!!
I'd also like to thank you lovely people for visiting here today. This is a really busy time of the year and I know how hard it can be to find the time. So, thank you so much!! I appreciate it immensely!!
Please take special care over the holiday period. Be safe and God Bless.
