Just had to use these beautiful Hot Off The Press papers to go with her – perfect!Used my Nesties to create all the frames and layering for the sentiment and inside decoration.I mixed up three sets of Marianne Design dies and added some flat backed pearls.All edges are all inky and distressed for a vintage feel.

Image : Christmas Seasons
Sentiment : From Penny Black The Wonder
Mediums : Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers,Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad,Brushed Corduroy and Frayed Burlap Distress Inks
Papers & Card : Base card made using Kraft card from my stash,DP Hot Off The Press Vintage Christmas Card Kit,Red and Green Cardstock from my stash
Tools : X-Cut Guillotine,Martha Stewart Scoring Board,Nestabilities Labels 4,Marianne Design Poinsettia Flower Die,Leaves from Marianne Design Fantasy Flower Die,Swirls  from Marianne Design Rectangle Frame Die,Big Shot,Tim Holtz Paper Distresser
To Embellish : Flat Backed Pearls from stash
