Last weeks card was very Victorian, I’ve switched it up this week with a more modern colour scheme using First Edition Silent Night papers.
Once again I’ve used those delish Pretty Flori Christmas flowers, very yum!  I sprayed white roses with a silver glimmer mist to lift the large poinsettia.
I die cut the frondy leaves from acetate and blinged them up with glitter.  LOVE how they turned out.  I also used leaves from guipure lace (link below)
And a peek at the inside, finished off to match the front.  This is not my usual style or colours but I really love how this turned out, and it didn’t take long to make either (apart from the drying time for the leaves)
