Advent Calendar Day #2 at Live and Love Crafts


Hi everyone, I'm here today with the second window in our Advent Calendar at Live and Love Crafts.


Sandy carries so many gorgeous things in her shop, there are a few that are my favourites, but the first product I'm picking for our Advent Calendar are these pearl centers. These are gorgeous, and I need to get some more as I'm down to my last one, they look fab in flower arrangements, which I have used quite a few times, or as the center of larger flowers, like I've done today, so today's prize is this set of three Pearl Centers from Maya Road:






Here is my card.


I've used papers form the It's Christmas Time from Maja Design, the papers on the front are both sides of Merry and inside is The Perfect Christmas Tree, the Poinsettia is cut from sheets out of the 6 x 6 paper pad, and I've used a Vintage Finding Pearl Centre for the center. 


I've used some Autumn Leaves Seasonal Shabby Seam Binding, fastened it into a double bow and added a beaded center. I've coloured Tilda in with my distress markers.


I've added some Gesso here and there too.


The card has been cut out using a Go Kreate die, and the oval is a spellbinders die. I'm entering this card into the 'Celebrate Christmas' challenge at Tilda's Town and the 'Christmas Card' challenge at Dutch Magnolia Chickies.

  15. OMG...I really haven't been around in ages, could have sworn I had commented on this card already, but supposedly not. Anywho, it's a beauty; I love the hape of it (just hope I can find some similar shape templates in the Cameo store...yup I placed an order yesterday, so with some luck it'll be here before Christmas!!! :-)). Stunning colouring and I love the large Poinsetta.

    Hugz,
    Sandy
