Letting the Paper do the Talking!


Hope y'all ready for the big day?! I'm ready but not in the right place! Weather conditions haven't improved so we figured it best to hang tight and travel to see the family when it's safe to do so!

So with none of my Mum's famous Maids of Honours to scoff on, I figured I'd share some Christmas cards with you:
A pretty simple design but the only way I've found I can use this particular pattern of DP - it's like a diva demanding the full attention of the card and not too many embellishments stealing its spotlight LOL!

I can't mass produce cards (my brain gets way too bored!) so only made 4 but even then had to mix things up a little with the ribbon and buttons!
So firstly ripe avocado ribbon and a pure poppy button:

...and secondly pure poppy ribbon and a spring moss button (I think this is my fave mix though don't tell the combo cards LOL!)

Card Recipe
(All PTI)
Stamps: Holiday Tree
Ink: Dark Chocolate/Versamark
Card: Dark Chocolate/Rustic Snowflakes DP/Ocean Tides/Spring Moss/Pure Poppy
Accessories: Cuttlebug/Nestabilities/Polka Dot Ribbon Pure Poppy/Polka Dot Ribbon Ripe Avocado/Vintage Buttons Pure Poppy & Spring Moss

So before I leave to scoff some more chocolate, I'd just like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas! I hope you have a wonderful, peaceful (and maybe in some cases, merry) day!
