Shabby Chic Christmas

This isn't my usual "style" of card... but I still thought that I would give it a go...

Elizabeth Whisson, shabby chic, christmas, copic, flourishes, trimmed with love

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
1. Fashionable Stamping Challenges - Shabby Chic Christmas
2. Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #248 - Score it, pierce it, colour it
The scoring is pretty small but I scored two lines on the sentiment piece. The piercing is on the "Ornate square" and I coloured in the Christmas tree with Copic markers.
3. Little Blue Button Stamps - Monthly challenge No. 11 - Christmas Theme

  1. Of wow this is gorgeous, the Frantage around the edges really makes it pop. So much to see and love.

    Thank you for sharing with us at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

    Warm crafty hugs from Shirl x x

  2. Love this! The embossing and that focal Christmas tree are gorgeous! Thank you for joining us at Fashionable Stamping Challenges!

  3. Oh WOW! This is STUNNING! I love the vintage look you got by stamping the tree onto kraft cs and distressing the edges of the bg and one of the layers. My fav part, though is the random embossing! I'm definitely going to give that look a try, myself! I'm so glad you joined us this week for the Timeless Tuesday Challenge!

    1. lol...glad it looks like kraft cs :-) its actually x-press it blending paper covered in lots of distress ink and tattered angels glimmer mist to give it that "brown", aged look :-)

  4. Beautiful!! Thank you for playing with Little Blue Button Stamps! Good luck!

  5. Well, certainly no one can tell that this is not your usual style, because it is GORGEOUS! The colors, snowy details, and beautiful layout make this a show stopper! I am so glad you could play along with us this week at Flourishes for our Timeless Tuesday Challenge! :)

  6. Wowsers Alshandra! Your card is amazing! Thanks for playing along with our "Timeless Tuesday Challenge" last week and we hope that you'll join us for our newest one... it's all about stitching!
