Happy Holidays

By Jcchris
Hello everyone, how's your Christmas? Well I fell sick right after Christmas lunch at my in-laws and it wasn't the best feeling! But I am recovering, thank God ;) With Christmas in mind, I decided to create a Christmas wreath card featuring Donna Salazar products. Let me share with you how I created it. 
PhotobucketFirstly, I spread the new Mix'd Media Chox Sage onto the Crafty Chronicle. Then I fan fold it & ran it thru with the leaves die. 
PhotobucketFor the part that is still "whitish", I filled them in with Mix'd Media Inx (Peridot), just to give two different tones to the leaves. 
PhotobucketHere is how the leaves will look like. Love it!
PhotobucketI started to paste the double leaves onto the card first. I pinched + folded them slightly before adhering to the cardstock. 
PhotobucketNext, I filled the gap in between with the single leaves. Pinch it slightly to create the 3D effect.
After I added more leaves in between of the gap, I decided to add beautiful swirl pearls. 
PhotobucketOnce you are happy with everything, apply some smooch glitz (starlight) for the sparkle effect :)
PhotobucketHere's the completed card :)
PhotobucketThe snowflakes were stamped using Mix'd Media Inx (Jasmine) and I love the shiny effect - goes very well with kraft cardstock. I blended the side of the card with Mix'd Media Inx (peridot + jasmine) to give the snowy look.
PhotobucketHope you like this Christmas card as much as I do. Would like to take this opportunity to wish you Merry Christmas + Happy Holidays!
