Christmas Rose Christmas Card

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

How has your week been? For some of us a long weekend is ahead of us. I hope you have something nice planned. We will be celebrating my mother-in-law's 90th Birthday, which was in June, this was the earliest we could get everyone together. People are so busy these days.

Yes it is another Christmas card from me. I was making a card for one of the Design Teams I am on and I liked the way the flowers and foliage worked together this inspired me to make this card.


This is a DL card. I found the script backing paper in one of my tidying sessions. 



This is the Season's Greetings die from Creative Expressions. In fact all the dies I used are ones designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions. 


Last year I bought the Christmas Rose die set and this is the first time I had used it. I also used the twigs from the Pine Bough die set and the Holly Sprays die set. The holly berries were created with Berry Red Pearl PVA glue. 


I was very pleased with how this card turned out. I have another idea that I might just try out soon. 

Enjoy the rest of the day. 


Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
