Simply Magical Layout BY SUE CREASE

Simply Magical Layout BY SUE CREASE

I'm here again to share a layout made for The Mad Scrapper Blog and this time it's Christmas! I'm using a postcard which we bought on a visit to Mount Doria in Florida back in 2008. It is Christmas Moonlight by Thomas Kinkade.
I chose to use the new collection by Maja Design which can be found in store, a full list of products can be found at the bottom of the page.
I trimmed the Believe paper to 11.5" sq so it could fit on top of the red as a contrast. This time I distressed the red. I stitched the opposite corners with green floss adding a few beads to the top edge. Then I added some Holiday Wishes rub-ons to pop from under the card. Before adding it to the red I inked the edges with Vintage Photo.
I added the postcard to a file frame and inked the edges too. I placed some cardboard underneath to give dimension. 
Here you can see how I have made two clusters to complement the card (I hope lol)
This photo shows the tiny trees and string frame I have used along with more rub-ons and flowers as well as the red hat pin which I purchased on the same holiday.
Another rub-on peeking out, more flowers and string frame here. The trees and frame I added white gesso and glitter to.
This title is a rub-on, there are so many beautiful ones with different fonts it was hard to choose.
I added some Nuvo glitter in snowfall to a few of the stars above Santa 
In this close up you can see a few gems I have added as well as the little "let it snow" button which if you have been crafting for a few years you may have bought some of these themed packets. I added some glitter to the flowers and leaves too.
I hope I have inspired you to use any postcards you may have picked up from a holiday because it doesn't always have to be a photo that you scrap. Thanks for stopping by again, I appreciate any comments left as I do read them. Till next time.

Love that red background, it really helps pop Santas hat, and your beautiful cluster of flowers that have been kissed by the glittery snow, just gorgeous! So many opportunities to highlight non-photos, what a great idea, really makes for an extraordinarily cozy winter layout. Love the font and all the goodies tucked in.
