Wild Orchid Challenge – an Old Fashioned Christmas

Our challenge on Wild Orchid Challenge this week is an Old Fashioned or Victorian Christmas. I love what the DT have come up with this week, the cards are truly amazing!

I must once again apologise for the photos if they are bad, I can’t really judge what they look like as the picture quality on the computer is so bad. My new graphics card is on its way thank goodness so I should be able to see what’s on the screen soon lol. Either that or I am so going to take a hammer to the whole lot before I am bald!!!

I had a play with my new dies from Go-Kreate. I love love love them! They arrived very quickly (next day actually) and they come packaged on a magnetic sheet so really easy to store. They cut beautifully too! I am loving the big dies, and have made quite a few different shaped cards this weekend. This was my first one, using the XXL Frames, Frilly #2.

The papers are from an old K&Co pad that I bought from Oyster Stamps a while back. The sweet image – Noel Faith - is from last year’s Sarah Kay release from Stampavie, and has been coloured with copics. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps, their Holiday Ticket Sentiments.

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and are 25mm hybrid tea rose, 15mm roses, 8mm semi open roses, 4mm rosebuds, cherry blossoms. The sweet little snowflakes are from Michaels, a lovely surprise from a sweet friend xx. The 16mm satin ribbon is from Craft Fairy.
