Magic of Christmas

Hello Classy Friends, Diane here with you today!
I live in a log home and each year it is decorated in red and white for Christmas. Somehow that color just seems to belong in a log type home. But there still is a girlie part of me that loves the vintage look of Christmas in the blue and pink colors!

I started out with a Darice snowflakes embossing folder
and topped it with a doily die cut.

I used the Memory Box Starry Wreath, and cut from the
beautiful new Wild Rose Studio Frosted Lace papers. The entire paper pack is full of dreamy pink and blue papers in gorgeous designs!

I cut a holly flourish and added Pink Pearls for berries. The holly was cut from Stardream Rose Quartz Metallic paper.

For the center of my wreath, I cut 2 Memory Box Leaping Deer. One was cut from the Stardream Rose Quartz Metallic paper, and a second from Luminized Curious Silver Metallic. I offset the silver deer on the pink one to create a shadow effect.

I finished the inside of my card with 2 more of the deer,
a scrap of paper left from the wreath, and the beautiful sentiment from JustRite Christmas Inner Thoughts stamps.

The finishing touches were a bow and a jingle bell.

I wanted to mention the Metallic papers I have used. These papers are a wonderful 105# weight, (normal card stock is about 80# weight), and when using with your die cuts, they add a beautiful shimmer and elegance to your projects.  I have been using them for quite some time now, and love every single beautiful color they come in. Give them a try with your next order!!
