Shabby Chic Christmas Card

Hello, everyone! I wanted to drop in today and share a Christmas card with you. I love Shabby Chic, so when I saw a challenge posted in a Facebook group, I decided I'd go for it. But I wanted this one to be a Christmas card, as I just bought this gorgeous paper and die cut from an online store called Crafty City. I love this new designer cardstock made by Prima. This one is the Sweet Christmas paper pad. Here is my card:
I wish the glitter on the poinsettia would show up better, because it sure is pretty! First, I made the poinsettia following the YouTube channel of Archana Joshi, tutorial LINK HERE. I then took some white as a base for the card, making it an A2 card. I cut out some paper from the pad, and distress the edges of it, then mounted it onto the white. I then cut out the girl image and mounted her on top of the 2nd layer. I used my Big Shot to cut out the blue and pink branches you see up there (also from Crafty City.  I added snowflakes, pearls, a pearl trim, and a pink rose trim to the card. Lastly, I added a white rose to the bottom right of the card (what's Shabby Chic without at least one rose, right??). The rose was also from Crafty City.

I entered this card into the Facebook Page Play Creative. You do have to join the group to participate. I have also entered it into The Merry Christmas Challenge Blog, #42, Anything Goes + Christmas - Twist: Add Snow. I have snowflakes. 

Thank you so much for stopping by! 

Blessings, Jeanie Ellis - Scrapbookingmamaw
