Dreamerland Crafts - Holiday Greetings

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all ready for the big day, not long now. I am almost ready, I've still got some wrapping to do and one more card to make.

Well only a few hours left and then the school holidays begin yay!! I am currently making my last Christmas card and I've saved the hardest one until last as it is for my hubby! I have decided to try and paint a scene - my first attempt went in the bin, so wish me luck for my second attempt.

Anyway before I sign off for Christmas I thought I would share one more Christmas card using another of the Dreamerland Crafts  stamps from the 2017 Fall collection. This fabulous stamp is called 'Holiday Greetings'.

Holiday Greetings
I have coloured the image with DI reinkers and I have used glamour dust for the bobble, trim on the dress, cuffs and hat and also for the lying snow.

The papers are by Maja.

The pine branches have been cut from a fantasy die and I've painted on some white gesso. The stars have been cut from an Yvonne Creations die called 'TwinklingStars'. I've also tucked a winterfun die cut and some corrugated cardboard  in between the layers.

The pine cones, pearl string, lace and pearl cluster are from the Ribbon Girl.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose 
Hair: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
Dress, Sack, Hats: Barn Door, Aged Mahogany, Stormy Sky, Gathered Twigs, Black Soot
Scarf: Forest Moss, Shabby Shutter, Black Soot
Bear and Dog: Gathered Twigs, Black Soot
Box: Gathered Twigs, Walnut Stain, Black Soot

Links to most of the materials I have used are at the bottom of this post, just click on a picture to be taken directly to the product.

I will still be creating behind the scenes, but I am signing off for a while to have a bit of rest, but I will back either after Christmas or early in the New Year once I have recharged my batteries.  

Thank you to you all for the wonderful support you have given me this year and for the wonderful comments you leave me, it means such a lot.

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and Santa brings you what you hope for and wish you all a happy and healthy New Year!
