Winter Wishes

Edit to add My Christmas gift for Cheryl R. :-)

Hi, hoooray.... i was able to photo edit some of my pictures yesterday and actually was able to shedule my posting for today :-) I have made this card using one of the absolute adorable stamps Magnolia has released in the New Years Collection. I used on this card heavey weight Vellum paper with snowflake print over the polka dot paper and on the second panel just the polka dot paper to give it a slightly different look. Sweing is done with silver thread and sewed with double stich so it really shows off a lot. 4 small Swarovski chrystals in each corner of the image panel add sparkle as well. Can you tell ? i really like this card lol
This is how the inside of the card looks like. Instead Dazzeling Diamond Dust that i used on the main image i used some Stickles to make the frame look icy.
This card is for sale - if you get any of my cards i will also give you a matching envelope - for this card i have made myself a matching envelope using the polka-dot CS lined with the vellum snowflake paper.

Oh my, what a beautiful card, love the paper and your colouring Claudia! The double sewing really makes a difference. I bought some of those corners a few days ago...nice aren't they? The inside looks wonderful with the die shape.
Have a great day.
