Christmas Romance

I was looking through my card album and came across this little one that I hadn't got around to blogging - so here it is as my first Christmas card for 2016!

The new Don and Daisy Christmas Romance stamp from Marianne Design is coloured with my Copic pens, then a sprinkling of frosty snow added.

Here's the card:

It's on a 5" square base card and the papers are a patchwork from the MD Scandinavian Winter pack with narrow white ric-rac braid covering the joins, I've loved the designs in this pack but now I just have oddments left and this was a good way of using up some of them.  I've used a selection of Marianne Design die cuts to embellish, finishing off with white pearl pen and more glitter frosting. 

These are the MD dies I used:

red flowers from Mulberry paper with flower set COL1323
pale blue flowers and centres of red flowers with flower set CR1323
leaves from set CR1245
snowflake from set LRO327
banner from set COL1325

The Jingle Belles blog challenge is for something old (my papers) and something new (the new Don and Daisy Christmas stamp).  And, over at Crafty Catz the theme is for flowers so with my sprinkling of red and white festive blooms, plus little blue ones to the side, I can enter with them too.

Enjoy your weekend - I'm stalking the postman for some new crafty stash .. .. .. fingers crossed my packages arrive tomorrow then I have the weekend to play!
