 Hello everyone,

This is post number 2 today, my Classic Design post is down below, and welcome to my CCAYR [Christmas Crafts All Year Round] post with a fun theme of use the alphabet and our letters this month is C and or D..[ church, Deer, Candles etc..for a bit of an idea]

For my project I fell in love with and not sure if I will send it this year or keep it, do you ever do that?

I started off with my background and again keeping on practicing with my oxides and getting better at it, my new brushes certainly help for Altenew..added water and presto..instant snow falling..

Die cut loads of pine needle and they have been sprayed with oxides, blue/green..then added berry branches with Nuvo crystal drops in Simply white..

Die cut these candles and put them together using white glitter paper for the dripping wax..

I had also added more berry branches to balance out a bit and a die cut Merry Christmas..

Side view of the slimline card and you can see the Nuvo crystal gems gleaming..

And there we are all it.

All done, thank you so much for stopping by, I'm out today at the hospital with my daughter she is getting results from tests so I'm holding my breath, could be a long day..


Challenges to enter...
