Christmas Poinsettia




A variety of white and off-white papers and vellum included in today's card, I spritzed the vellum with water to shape it, but as soon as I'd done that it curled into shape on it's own, 2 pearlised paper die cuts at the back to give some substance to the flower.

We woke to snow and hail this morning lots of heavy showers but thankfully it's only lying on the grass although the hill is white and the top shrouded in mist.

Apologies for the poor photo the light is terrible.

 Hopefully going to the cinema to see Idris Elba in Bastille Day this week I loved him in Luther and am looking forward to this film.

  6. Taking photos of white only cards can be tricky, but I do recognize the beauty of this card. How lucky the paper curled itself with water, it's looking really natural. A very pretty, classy design.
