Papermania Victorian Christmas A4 Ultimate Die-cut & Paper Pack – card #1
I bought this Papermania Victorian Christmas A4 Ultimate Die-cute & Paper Pack (retired, but still available online) a couple of years ago at my favorite outlet shop and am just now getting around to actually creating with it. So far this year I've made three cards and counting. Trying to think what to title the accompanying blog posts is proving problematic. I mean if I put 'Victorian Girl with Muff' what will show up next to it in search engines, hey? Therefore, I've decided to just number them and be done with it. So in case you're wondering, 'What's with the numbers?' That's why.
Another card in the stash stratagem, and from yet another Ultimate Paper Pack, is this Bellissima Bird Christmas card.
I liked the Christmas-y Victorian girl image on this topper and decided to echo her two white coat buttons with dotted paper (not in the kit, but in my stash). Then, the red and white bells went so well with the paper, I had to add those. And as for the wooden Christmas tree embellishment, I've had these forever and a day, thinking one day I'll use these, and voila – the day has arrived.
