I love this peachy beige and white colour combination for Christmas cards, it gives them a lovely shabby look with minimum work. I have used Pion papers as the soft colours didn’t overpower the pretty lace. The image is also by Pion, I bought a few sheets from Live Love Crafts that have the most divine vintage prints on that are a perfect size for cards.
I used Snow-Tex in places on the picture and also on the flowers.
And finished off the inside to match the front
All the embellishments are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I used:

A friend asked if I would make one of my mixed media wall hangings for her to send to family in the USA for Christmas. This is what I came up with.
I started off by getting my hubby to drill me some holes so I could join the MDF snowflakes to make one long hanging, then gave them a few coats of white paint front and back. I then die cut some doily shapes from 300 gsm card and stuck down with pva glue. The gaps were filled in by using some structure paste and the snowflake stencil. I then painted the flowers white and when dry glued in place. Then came the fun part, digging out the colour mists and having FUN! Once this was dry I joined the snowflakes with white seam binding.
The NOEL word and the bauble are chipboards that I picked up from The Range (I think it may be by Papermania?). The angel wings and the floral wreath I made using air dry clay and a couple of moulds.
Some close ups, the largest snowflake first. I love how the die cut doily and embossing shows up so well.
The middle one, I just LOVE those angel wings. The heart is a plastic button.
And the smallest one, I painted the clay wreath with some of the misters
