Happy Friday, sweet friends! I'm on the Live & Love Crafts blog today with my take on Sandy's holiday theme. My heart couldn't resist an opportunity to indulge in Christmas joy. :o)
This is for a special recipient who has endured far more than anyone should. Although my post is short, the love packed into the card is immeasureable. ♥︎
I used A Gift for You, which is Maja Design's traditional Christmas collection. The base shape is Go Kreate's Large Frame Frilly #10, which is topped with Maja's Given from the Heart pattern. I was drawn to the gorgeous deep red and white Christmas stars. The sentiment is from My Craft Spot's Joy to the World stamp set (no longer produced), which is cut with an altered Spellbinders Nested Lacey Pennant.
Beneath all of the goodies is the lovely Isabelle lace, which I seem to use quite often! The beautiful focal point image is from the Die Cut sheet, which I've encircled in Shabby White Frantage and a tiny pom trim. A blanket of snow rests along the bottom of my card, courtesy of Shabby Chiffon Ruffle Trim topped with Sunflower Pearl Trim. The Memory Box My Precious Snowflakes in the corner are covered in Glamour Dust and centered with a Sunflower Pearl.
The poinsettias (made with the Cheery Lynn Poinsettia Strip) are sprinkled with Shabby White Frantage for a touch of snow mixed with holiday gold. Their centers are Frosted Berries in Bordeaux, which add the prettiest sparkly dimension. Memory Box Frosted Spruce Trees are made snowy with Polar White Flower Soft. The card's interior is lined with the Underneath the Christmas Tree design.
Thank you for visiting! Have a wonderful day. :o)
