Blue Christmas

It’s been a while since I used digi papers but when I saw the new ones at Whimsy Stamps it was love at first sight.  SO my colours and style.  Total love!

I made some Hellebores from foamiran – man I love this stuff!  I have tons and tons of mulberry flowers that I really should use but I can’t leave the foamy stuff alone lol.  The silver fringy centre in the small hellebore is cut from the Hellebore Flower die set, and before heating it till it curled I gave the fringing a coat of silver acrylic paint.  I need to experiment more, I think the fringe will be fab for daisy centres too. 
I added some glitter holly leaves and some pearlescent green leaves (out with the old sparkly paint again) and some berries.

I die cut a couple circle frames because I didn’t want to cover up the gorgeous paper with doilies and stuff, this way the paper is all still visible.  A change for me cuz I tend to cover everything up when I get totally carried away.

Love these icy colours, makes such a lovely change from my very traditional reds, golds and greens.

    1. Thanks Bunny. The inside is a sort of copy of the front. I've got a video done of how I made a card very similar to this one, it will be on my You Tube channel in the next week, just got to get the editing done.
