A shabby chic Christmas card

It is Tracey here with my mid month inspiration project. Despite the sun shining i fancied making a christmas card so i do not have to rush my projects nearer to the festive period  i am going to get organised this year ... Honestly
I have used some lovel;y textures on this card . I used an MDF birdhouse which i crackled using the new creative expressions  white crackle paste.It gives delicate craacks when its dry .Just apply the paste and leave it to air dry . fab

I used hessian which i cut freehand into a heart shape, ripped papers from an old craftwork cards  Christmas paper  pad from years ago. some kraft card ,white gesso,a Sizzix wreath die,and a Sheena Douglass stamp for the sentiment stamped with gathered twig  oxide ink.
The flowers were handmade using a Marianne D die with a glittery stamen added.

The fabulous double ribbon bow and string bow were both formed using my CraftDeeBowZ BOW

I love the dimension and shabby chic look to this card and i hope it inspires you to join in the Septenber challenge where anything goes with a handmade bow
Happy Crafting
Tracey x

This card is so pretty and it's just my style. I love the neutral colors and that little red heart just pops off the card! Such pretty die cuts and a very nice layout. Your cards are also so darn pretty!
