This fortnight's theme was chosen by Margaret of Dutchess blog. Margaret always has the most gorgeous cards on her blog and I think she is the diecut queen. Her layered cards are gorgeous!
My card today contains two festive food items that bring me warm childhood Christmas memories. My Mum always had a candy wreath on the front door. A friend of hers made them and took orders. The candies were wrapped in cello and each one was tied onto the wire frame. A wee pair of scissors hung from a bow and you used them to take a candy off...what a treat!
My DP is Martha Stewart and is just like the candies on our first wreaths. The pink snowflake DP is a couple of years and is a snippet from a scrapbook page. I managed to find just the right shade of green and pink card for the mats and the snowflakes... That was quite lucky as usually I can never find just the right shade...lol I am sure you all know what I mean!
The snowflakes are Impression Obsession...these are my fave snowflake dies. I had some K & Co baubles and I pulled them apart to make embellies for the center of the snowflakes. Once assembled, I coated them quite generously with Stardust Stickles.
The inside is fairly simple. Just a snippet of pink card framing a bit of white card with a Stampin up Xmas sentiment from 1999.
