A Joyful Christmas

Hi everyone!
Ready for a new card for the Live & Love Crafts Inspiration Blog??
I'm a little bit tired of the green and red combination for Christmas cards so I went for a non-traditional pink and white colour combo this time..
I really like how it all turned out..

I've used once again some Maja Design papers from the Vintage Summer Basics Collection..
The sheets are 1909 and 1910 to be more specific..
The card's shape was made using a GoKreate die..
There are lots of Magnolia stamps on this card..
There's the A Joyful Christmas Text and A Joyful Tilda from the Winter Wonderland Collection 2013
and the Postmark from the With Love Collection 2013..

I've also used some JoyCrafts dies..
The Winter Wishes Ice Crystals Border and the Snowflake Circle..
They are both covered with some Shabby White Frantage..
All the paper edges are distressed usind a Tim Holtz tool and then inked with some Walnut Stain Distress Ink..
I alway sew the borders with my sewing machine too..
The doily is there of course.. ;)

A lot going on on this side too..
You can see a bag and a tag hidden under all those flowers..
The lace is from my stash..
I've used Spellbinders Ovals and Opulent Ovals for the image..
There's some Frantage around Tilda too..
I've used lots of WOC pearls..
Did you notice the Vintage Metal Jingle Bells?? So tiny..

The flowers are from WOC and Kort & Godt..
There are so many different kinds.. I used a little bit of everything..
Some of the flowers are covered with Glossy Accents and Diamond Dust..
And have you seen all the berries, flower sprays and foam flower buds?
The metal corner is gorgeous, right?

I've used some Crispy Ribbon and the Rhinestiones lace..
The higlights are made with and Inkssentials White Opaque pen..
I've also added some Picket Fence Crackle Paint and some Gesso here and there..
This Christmas Stocking charm is so cute..

I really went crazy with the flowers and other embellies this time..
Sandy's got some of the most amazing flowers in her shop..
They are all sooooooo gorgeous..
I just couldn't stop adding them.. :)
There's some cheesecloth between and under them..

The image is coloured with Distress Inks and reinkers..
As usual I've used some Archival Ink and the 300g Langton aquarel paper..
This is the very first time I use the Liquid Applique..
Take a look at her hat..
Can you see the amazing effect?? I love it!!!
