Glistening Paperwhites




The Happiest Holiday’s continue with our next beautiful set that’s sure to delight all of you botanical lovers out there.  Here’s Marcy’s thoughts about  Glistening Paperwhites.  

You can't have Christmas without boughs of beautiful greenery. This special grouping will breathe a whoosh of fresh winter air into your cardmaking, with an illustration of classic Paperwhites paired with Juniper and Seeded Eucalyptus. These natural elements would be shimmeringly lovely embossed in silver, gold, or blue metallic, dusted with glitter, colored in cool shades of green, blue, and ivory. Individual accent images of each of the components of the bough work on their own or as enhancements to the main image. Can you get enough of these sentiments? Six options to help you make cards for the most wonderful time of the year!  Includes 10 images



It’s such a gorgeous arrangement of delicate paperwhites and all kinds of greenery that makes Christmas feel beautiful and festive.  It was really fun to colour up the image too!  I fussy cut the flowers out placing them in a windowed design over vellum so that it had a softened effect.  

Because the image is quite detailed, and the paper is detailed, I decided to make the embellishing quite simple, adding a pretty rhinestone “crown” and then a paper bow to accent.  





Here’s the Copics I used for colouring this beauty up!  

And now we invite you to head on over to the Bloom Brigade and see how their paperwhites glisten and shine.
