Merry Christmas

Octavia Merry Christmas

Hey everyone! Today I have another card for you all using the Octavia Frosted Winter Collection from Polkadoodles. Wouldn’t have guessed it would you have? Nikky puts so much into these collections aside from just the images and sometimes its fun to just play with a large sentiment on a card.

Octavia Merry Christmas 2

I started by printing the image off at 3 1/4″ inches tall then I die cut it out with a stitched boarder. The back pannel has some Peerless Watercolours spread on it so add a bit of colour. I die cut some stitched snowflakes from Lawn Fawn and coloured them with the same colours, some pink burlap from my stash and white sequins finish off the front of the card.
