Christmas Card Club Challenge #7 - Christmas Flowers

Hi Crafters,

Just popping in today to share my Christmas card make for the friendly Christmas Card Club.
Each fortnight we make a card or cards following a chosen Christmas theme so that we have a lovely large stash by the time December comes, this saves a lot of angst and last minute panic :o)

This week it was Carol's turn to choose a theme and she has given us 

Christmas Flowers


I have a lot of these decoupage sheets from Craft Creations in my stash and thought this was suitable for Carol's theme. A couple of papers, a die cut sentiment and a few of those never-ending peel-offs that I'm trying to use up too :o)

Love this beautiful basket with the Christmas roses. It looks gorgeous paired with the red plaid background paper, the gleam of the gold sentiment, and it's stunning! Always good when you can use some of your stash to make a pretty card. TFS

This is such a lovely decoupaged floral image. I enjoy layering the pieces up and find it so relaxing. Your finished card looks wonderful. Great you were able to use some stored stash up. That is always such a good feeling...

Hi Lorraine, lovely image of Christmas Roses, and you are not alone at trying to use up peel-offs! They seemed a great idea at the time, as I had few sentiment stamps, now I think I have at least three lifetimes supply! Hugs, Shaz Xx
