 Hello everyone,

Sharing another Christmas card, this time we are up to # 26 and very gold..

Showed the frame the other day using my new Crafts Choice paper pad from my spotlight store here in New Zealand, on special, best shopping day of my life as I bought loads more stuff from there at huge discounts, and typed all of this sentence in one breath..[ inhale]

There is the thickness by cutting 4 white frames and gold on top.

This sheet of gold was from the same pad, and not too thick but thick in it's own way..
the flowers had a pinching of it's petals and the paper stayed like that which is very good, and makes a heck of a difference..

Chose green card stock for the base and inked the edges for depth,
not perfect and not necessary as most of it is covered up.

Chose green and gold foiled deer papers for behind the frame..

a gold sentiment.. down the bottom?

Up the top?

In the middle?

went for the top..and added a cluster of leaves and berries..

Picked the position for the flowers..

Had to add pinecones.

and pearl centers for my poinsettias..a bit messy until the glue dries..

Then decided, right or wrong, to use more of these very tiny pearls for snow!!

We have dimension..

And after adding a silver grey bow up top, I was done!..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..

Beautiful Chrissy, I love the frame, it makes it all pop, your gold flowers are super pretty and of course, the pinecones are just a must. You have done so well making all those Christmas cards, I swear you must have a conveyor belt, hahaha. xx

The white frame is perfect with the deep greens and gold, such a lovely contrast and I love how you fold your poinsettias, it makes them so much more realistic and gives lovely dimension. Another beautiful Christmas card!

I sometimes have a hard time using these all over print papers but you have showed some neat was to using them, your flowers and foliage at the top sure does go great with them, pretty touches of snow!
