Last Christmas commission to share...then its New Year!

Hello again,

Another commission make I'd like to share with you based on a card I did a while back.  The simple style was chosen by a friend who asked me to a make a special Christmas card for someone special, so I'd like to share it with you now I can.

This is another short post as we are all so very busy with family at this time of year that I don't want to keep you too long xxx

Here it is:

No digi stamp, just the sentiment and the added name...I think it turned out so effective that I will be doing more similar in future :D
The sentiment is double layered on white card, a technique I've shared before with you that works so well to lift the image without taking the eye away from it.  I added a touch of blue guilding wax by Cosmic Shimmer to the edges (its one of Phil Martins colours)
The backing papers are from Michele R Designs as is the insert
The snowflakes are cut on my sillouette
The bling, flowers, charms, white gesso, pearls and other embellies are from That Craft Place
Top Tip: the voile edging is again pleated using my hot glue gun, one pleat at a time!  So much quicker than sewing (which I can't lol) and a new tip is that I use my large embossing tool (large ball on the end) to push the voile into the hot glue!  Keeps my fingers away and the glue comes off the metal ball end so easily its a great trick xx

Here's the close ups:

Happy Crafting and a Happy New Year to you and yours
