Woo-hoo...I've managed to add another card to my Christmas card collection for this year. I think I'm averaging one Christmas card per month--LOL, I think that's just pitiful! I really have to do better. Anyway here's my Christmas-In-July card.
I just love hellebores--commonly known as Christmas Rose. They come in a variety of colours, but the white ones are my favorite. So I've tried to recreate them in paper--I think I came close, don't you think?
Edited: I've now done a tutorial on the paper hellebores/Christmas Rose which you can find HERE if interested.
I've turned this into an easel card...
- Delightful Tilda from the Special Moments Collection 2013
- Peppermint from the Merry Little Christmas Collection 2013
These 2 stamps and other Magnolia images, both full-size and mini, are available from Magnolia-licious on-line store. If you don't see the particular one you are looking for, contact Diana and ask her if she can bring it in for you.
The Sea Breeze Collection 2013, Magnolia's newest stamp collection, are in the store now.
Check out also the selection of wonderful Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet and newly introduced to the store are the cute Wild Rose Studio stamps.
