Happy Holidays!

Happy Monday, everyone!! Lisa here to share a couple of Christmas cards with you today featuring poinsettias made with flower making foam, as well as several other products found in the Wild Orchid Crafts Store.

I used Ivory Flower Making Foam to create these poinsettias, inking the bottom layer to create the leaves.

For the centers of the flowers, I used Red Bead Berry Spray Clusters and White Bead Berry Spray Clusters. Tucked among the flowers are Skeleton Leaves, White Mulberry Paper Leaves, Frosted Berry Sprays and White Spiral Stamens. I also used Self-Adhesive Pearls in two sizes.

Green Hearts for Christmas

Hello crafty souls Ulrika here!

I really like to totally change bargain buys! I bought these cute hearts 50% off and totally gave them a makeover! They were white with dragonfly stickers on when I bought them.

 First I painted them with gesso and then I added some texture with a stencil and modeling paste. Then I painted the hearts with a really shiny green color and also added two different shades of metallique wax. After the hearts was dry properly the fun begin with adding lots of flowers!

 I mixed Roses, Lily Flowers, Miniature Sweetheart Blossoms and Berries. To get even more texture I added two sizes of Art-stones from Prima, Glassfillers and a ton of glitter.

Thank You for visiting Wild Orchid Crafts blog today!

Hugs from Ulrika!

Rustic christmas card

Hello dear friends, Evgenia Petzer with you today. I am sharing a new christmas card that I made using the new papers from Maja design and combined them with the...roses, and I think its still perfect for christmas. I have picked the colors of my roses that are very close to the papers, so they matched perfectly together.

close ups:
 I have sprinkled the larger roses with some "snow" glitter.
 I love how this small artificial balls look on the pine trees and look at this beautiful pearl star (perfect for christmas- from WOC- see the product list below)

Christmas box and matching card

Hello crafty souls Ulrika here!

I think it´s really nice to have a matching box with your card when you give it to someone really special! I think my sons teacher will get this box and card as Christmas gift. It´s really easy to fold your own box just make sure the box is a bit larger than your card so the card will fit in your box.

For my card and box I used papers from Swedish Maja Design. 

 The lid on the box and the card inside have similar design but still slightly different. On my lid I framed the image with a snow themed chipboard frame. 

 I chose white, grey and silver grey flowers for my flower cluster. For more shapes and textures I also added white frosted berries and white bead stamens.

 When you open the box you find the card inside.

 I used the same shape for the image but framed it different.
On both papers and embellishments I used Gesso for some white wash and highlights. I think the white Gesso add to the wintry feeling almost looking like snow.

Thank you for visiting Wild Orchid Crafts blog today!
