Card Design: Victorian Christmas with Nicecrane Designs

Hello to you all on this lovely Wednesday evening.  It is time to share my latest Nicecrane Designs creation with you all.  This one uses one of the pretty images from the Christmas Roses CS Vol 2 collection. There are some wonderful old Victorian images in this set.  

I decided to make another non-traditional Christmas card and I am pretty pleased with how it turned out.  Many of the images
from Nicecrane's, suitable for Christmas cards, lend themselves well to the non-tradtional look. 

Thankfully this also means I have another Christmas card to add to the pot.  As Kris over on Imagine That! Digis by Kris keeps reminding us with a countdown, Christmas is now less than 64 days away.  EEEEEKKKKK!!!! are my card and the details...

Christmas Cards to date for 2015:  23

Digital Image Details: 
  • Christmas Roses CS Vol 2:  This great set features several beautiful young ladies all in various types of scenes.  For this card I used the image you see second down in the top right hand corner of the preview below.  Click on the name or the watermark below to take you to its location in the store (I realize the preview sheet says Vol 1, however the link in the store says Vol 2, so I'm going to go by that).
  • The ribbon is Crafts brand and was purchased at Dollarama.

Digital Sentiment: 
  • This wonderful sentiment was created by Paulette from Create with TLC.  While I picked it up a while back as a freebie, you can purchase it in the Happy Happy Joy Joy Word Art Set OR in the Joy, Joy, Joy Digi Image Set.  I've linked the two watermarks below to go to their location in the store.  For great freebies and inspiration be sure to click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and to see more awesome sets available for sale, click HERE to go to the home page of the store.

Paper Products: 
  • Card base and matting:  Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, ivory.
  • Image and sentiment bases:  Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
  • The designer paper is from Recollection's either the Mosaic Memories Paper Pad or the Paisley and Damask Paper Pad.  Man, I really need to start writing these things down ahead of time.
  • The paper used as accent strips are from Ki Fancy Free paper pad.
Challenges I am hoping to enter...
