Joys of Christmas - Home for the Holidays - Cathy

Merry Christmas everyone!  This is my final card that I will be sharing with you as a Creative Team member of Maja Design. It has been a dream come true being able to create with the wonderful collections this year and I certainly will continue to do so in the the following months. I hope that today you are enjoying the time with your family and friends and that Santa has been kind to you!

I die cut Spellbinders Fleur de Elelgance and while the paper was still in the die, used a distress ink applicator and sponged weathered wood distress ink. I selected the sentiment from  a Kaisercraft St Nicholas clear stamp and used my MISTI stamping tool to position and stamp it onto my die cut.

To form this cluster, I used a Cheery Lynn fanciful flourish die and used a Green Tara azalea and some Wild Orchid Crafts roses.

To add fullness to my bows, I used two widths of rayon ribbon on my peg bow maker.

As my card reads, I do wish you the joy of Christmas and a safe and prosperous new year. I would also like to thank Marie, Camilla and Jenny for the wonderful opportunity of being part one of the Maja girls this year. I have loved every moment.

Hi! I'm Cathy. I live in Sydney and am a Primary School teacher. I am passionate about teaching and love what I do. At present paper crafts are my creative outlet, which is my other passion. I am drawn to vintage, shabby chic styled crafts which I love to create. I do enjoy other crafts such as sewing, quilting, knitting and crotchet…not enough time! I am always inspired to learn and to try new techniques in both teaching and my crafts. I love Maja Design papers and enjoy creating with them.
