It's Anja again. We are all snowed in here. It's such a nice Sunday to spend inside with a cup of tea and all my crafting supplies out. I'm on a mission today to make all my Christmas cards. I have my mum to help me, so I hope will be able to do them all.

For today's post I made a card with Christmas florals.

For this card I used:
- Cottage Cutz dies (Christmas Floral, Pierced Circle Set, Nested Stitched Scallop Circle Set, Celebrate Phase),
- Distress Inks (Peeled Paint, Pine Needles, Forest Moss) and Oxide (Fired Brick),
- white card base (14,5x11,5 cm),
- craft paper for background (10x13 cm) and die cuts,
- white card stock for die cuts (300 g),
- texture plates with bricks,
- white pigment ink,
- red and pearl liquid drops,
- brush,
- Wink of Stella glitter brush pen,
- adhesive foam pads,
- paper glue.

First I made the background. I used craft paper and texture plate to make it look like a wall.

I added a bit of white. I just brushed the paper with the whole ink pad.

Then I die cut the greenery and colored it with Distress Inks, a bit of water and a water brush.

I die cut Celebrate phrase and colored it whit red Distress Oxide.

I die cut two circles for the middle of the card. I glued both together. On the backside I added a few adhesive foam pads to glue the circles on top of the greenery.

When all the greenery was dried I glued it together with the brick background to the card base. I added some liquid drops on top of the leaves.

I decided to add a bit of glitter to the celebrate phrase, before I glued it on the card.

And this is my finished card.

Have a beautiful Sunday and thank you for visiting.
Anja Z.

I really like your arrangement. You've placed all the greenery just perfectly. I also love the texture of the brick embossed wall. The overall image reminds me of some of the things I've seen hanging on brick homes in Europe. Simple, fresh and clean. Love it! -Janet
