Vintage Christmas

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
