White Christmas Decorations

Good morning everyone! 

A quick post today to share some Christmas decorations made in between putting together other projects.

I wanted some white decorations to set off the white and red poinsettias I made last year for the Manse mantlepiece. We don't go in for many decorations but the mantlepiece always gets the full treatment!

I have used Eileen Hull's cube die set and experimented with some heavy cardstock I managed to purchase from a Model Railway site! 

The boxes were gessoed and then I used Tim's Poinsettia die and some Crackle Paste to add some texture. It is difficult to see in the photograph being white on white!

As you know I just love making these tattered poinsettias!

I have not had a chance to enter challenges just recently, so I would like to enter my little trio into Stamps and Stencils: A grungy Christmas.

Thank you all for visiting today and I hope the weather is better beside you! Grey, wet and soon to be windy here.
