Snowy Christmas

Hello, sweet friends! I hope your week is off to a sparkly start! I'm posting today on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog, sharing a snowy Christmas inspiration.

I used Foamiran for my poinsettia, which has a lovely soft effect; perfect for a peaceful Christmas. :) For a festive pop of red, my poinsettia is centered with a red bead berry spray.♥️
Cascading from either side are babies breath fabric flowers. Their wispiness and pearly elegance make my heart dance! Although the white option is currently out of stock, the pale blue is available and would be stunning for wintry Christmas creations.♥️
I created a ruffly lace snowdrift, lined with my favorite flat-back pearl string, before nestling in a Wycinanka chipboard Christmas tree. Self-adhesive pearls were sprinkled atop.♥️The sentiment is from My Craft Spot (no longer in business), which is cut out with a Spellbinders banner die and trimmed with lace.
Tucked within my floral arrangement are pearl snowflakes and frosted berries. The sparkling iciness of winter is magical.♥️The pretty papers are from Pion Design's The Night Before Christmas.
Thank you for fluttering on by and I wish you a beautiful day. :)♥️

  2. Oh my dear friend Karen, what a charming Christmas card. Beautiful papers, great flowers and stems. Wonderful Wycinanka Christmas tree. The lace with pearls looks so elegant, and I love the sentiment.
    Thanks a lot for your kind words on my blog.
    Be blessed and many hugs Petra x

  3. Oh, Karen, what a beautiful Christmas card! The vintage red of the papers sets a wonderful background for the embellishing. Evokes a feeling of coziness!

  4. It's so hard to think of a snowy Christmas when I'm sitting here with 30 deg C weather, and loving it! I'm a tropical kinda gal who wishes it was summer all year round :-) But Karen, you card fills my heart with Christmas spirit. I love it. You always have the most beautiful chippies and incorporate them in your cards beautifully. I have a handful of chippies and never know what to do with them or how to use them on my cards. Thank you for your sweet inspiration.
    Have a lovely day.
    PS: Although I don't like the cold, I'm still counting down till Christmas day - 96 days to go :-)
    Hugs & Blessings
