A pile of presents with berries, pine cones and holly leaves

Hi everybody,

A while back Wild Orchid Crafts introduced various gorgeous Christmas berry sprays and my favorite right away was the one with red Christmas Berries, pine cones and holly leaves. Today I'd like to share a card that I made with just one of these gorgeous sprays.
The image is by Lili of the Valley and is called Pile of Presents. The paper that I used are old ones by Basic Grey and I thought they matched the spray perfectly.
A close up of the image. I colored the image again to match the pretty spray and the gorgeous red open roses.
And a close up of the berries, leaves and pine cones. As I mentioned I only used one of these sprays, I even have some berries left. I thought I'd explain how I used the spray. I removed the tape with which the leaves, berries and pine cones are attached to each other, cut of a bit of the excess stamens and slipped the stamens under the image that I glued on the card base with thick 3D glue (the glue was of course still wet when I did this). With a little syringe I added a bit more glue underneath the pine cones and the berries but I'm pretty sure they would have stuck in place without that drop of glue ones the 3D glue had completely dried.

I hope you like my Christmas card and love these gorgeous sprays as much as I do. Have a great day everybody!

Hugs,

Exploding box

Hello everyone :)
Today I want to show you an exploding box with lots of beautiful flowers and butterflies.


I used beautiful lilies and tea roses and added lots of sweet tiny rosebuds. I tried to create a little garden inside of the box.

Ice Skating

Hi there, here’s another Christmas card, my card stash is stacking up nicely this year.

.And I used some delicious goodies from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Isn’t that corner from the mixed metal embellishments just sublime?  I tarted it up a bit with a vintage cabochon Copenhagen, and added a snowflake from the metal Christmas embellishments set.  And then I used a magnolia (still my favourite flower), some lilies and open roses (15mm) and finished off with some pearls.
