My apologies for not posting this yesterday as I promised, but with one thing and another I was unable to get to the laptop to write it up. So without wasting anymore time here is my second Christmas card adorned with my handmade items again.
If you look closely you can see another of the lovely Linda Wescotts doilies just popping out over the pennant. To make the doilies go further I often cut them in half to use like this. I know it is sacrilege to cut up someones hard work, but I love to use Linda's doilies and would hate to waste the other half just glued underneath the topper. So really I am doing a good thing and I get two cards for the price of one doily!
For the pin I used here, I kept the colours traditional green and red, but I used them with silver bead spacers and caps as gold was too gaudy for this card. I thought the cool of the silver tones was more appropriate with the bluey tones in the papers.
The pretty pearly embellishment in the center of the red flower is a button from The Hobby House. They have some gorgeous pearly buttons in both silver and gold tone. Worth a look if you are after something like this; the eyelets on the back are only plastic and are easy to remove with cutters.
Below you can see my latest piece of lace. For this one I kept the basis really simple with rows of double crochet and trebles and then finished the end with scallops to fluff it out a bit.
And finally a side view............
Well that's it for another day. I do hope you have enjoyed seeing my latest creations (pins, lace and flowers) on my two Christmas cards. I have created more Decorative Pins and lace so I will make some cards over the weekend to showcase more of them.
Thank you so much for popping by again, you are so kind and your support means the world to me.
I do hope you all have a good day and it is the start of a successful weekend.
Best wishes and regards Linda xx
