SHABBY CHIC NAPKIN CHRISTMAS CARD

 

Hi and welcome all my very talented and craft loving friends.

 

Today I have another Christmas card I made recently.

I am getting more time to blog lately as my Granddaughter is helping me with my house work.

She is such a treasure.

 


  This is a 8"x8" size card.

The image is a Anna Marie Napkin and I decoupaged the lovely Robins.

The paper used is a download from Carnation Crafts.

I added lots of red berry stamens, white flowers, and ivy leaves for my floral bouquet.

Then I cut up a beaded necklace for the frosty baubles and added them on top.

Finished off with lots of glitter to the image.

The mdf sentiment is a Anna Marie one sprayed with Crafters Companion Spray and Sparkle Pearl Diamond.

 

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comment.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Love your napkin robin. Havn’t tried that technique for a long time. Lucky you to have a little elf helper. Hugs Mrs A.

What a beautiful card Jenny, the sparkle is incredible and I love that you used the beads from a necklace for the berries, what a good idea. Robins are among my favourite birds, we have several in the garden that are really friendly. They do say that when you see a robin it is someone from heaven paying a visit, I like to think that one of ours is my Dad, who left us far too soon xx
