Christmas Layout with Donna

Hi all, My turn today on the blog and I wanted to show you a layout I created using alcohol inks, the totally gorgeous new Santa Sleigh Tall Card die set (which I love by the way so expect more with this die). The background was a pattern paper, I added some shine with the new Golden Age Snow Alcohol Ink and it hit the wow factor on the paper and that sunburst stamp is wonderful.
I adore the Pine Branch die and it looks wonderful behind flowers.. Coloured with the new Alcohol Ink Markers, it was easy to then cut around the Merry Wreath and place it behind the photo.. Did you notice the holly leaves and berries on top of the wreath? They were stamped and fussy cut from the Merry Wreath stamp set. I also stamped the bell and ribbon twice and fussy cut the top bell and adhered it using 3D foam tape.

I love these stars from the Santa’s Sleigh Tall Card die set and don’t you love the hole border that is around the tall card.. I added some sewing around it and the whole page to give it some more texture.

Adding lots of texture with the StarBurst stamp in gold and pink around the page brought it all together..
