The last Christmas wish

The decorations are well & truly down for another year but I just have one more Christmas make to sneek in!.

This is the card I made for my Mother & Father in law & also for my crafty friend Carole who teaches our workshops with us at Out Of The Blue. 

I also made the same card in traditional reds & greens for my Mum & Dad & Auntie & Uncle. 

The poinsettia is a Woodware clear stamp which is really lovely to use as are all of their stamps. 
I stamped in black & coloured with dusty Concorde distress ink as watercolour & cut & layered the flowers together.
 The leaves, berries & die cut flourishes were washed with pine needles. 

The embossed lilac background was enhanced with treasure silver gilding wax as were the edges of the die cut stamped sentiment.

The finishing touch was just to add diamond Stickles glitter glue to the petals & berries to add a bit of sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by
