Pretty Little Studio - Home For Christmas

Christmas Greetings! It's finally here! I'm sharing two cards today made with the Pretty Little Studio NEW! Home for Christmas Collection! You'll love the soft watercolor look of the papers and embellishments! 
This is one of my favorite layouts, and I've made a simliar card with several other collections. To recreate this card you'll need to start with a darker shade of card stock for your card base, topped with a lighter shade of card stock cut slightly smaller. You want a lighter card stock on top so you can add lots of elements and let them steal the show.

Add die cut or sticker labels spaced evenly over the lighter card stock panel, and embellish the labels with die cuts, flairs and other embellishments. I try to match the embellishment to the label color. For example: I placed a red poinsettia on a red label.

I added a few gems and sequins for some sparkle and shine.
My second card was really easy to put together because I used the big floral die cut from the Grandma's House pack.
I started with a background of pattern paper topped with a doily, and then the large floral die cut.
I added a few accents, like a sticker label at the top so I can personalize with a name or a sentiment, and a scatter of sequins.
I love the bit of lace peeking out from behind the florals - it's like lace next to the watercolor floral design.
Wishing you lots of blessings and love!

I like the shades of pinks and greens you've used. These are both pretty Jeanne. I hope you enjoyed a Merry Christmas!
