Christmas essence card

Handmade Christmas card with Mary and Jesus by Ingeborg van Zuiden

Christmas….. so many traditions, so many differences in traditions in so many different countries, but the real ‘red’ thread through it all is that it’s about Maria and Josef giving birth to Jesus Christ, our savior. That’s the essence of Christmas and that’s what I wanted to celebrate when creating this Christmas card. I indulged the proud mother and baby Jesus with shimmery red poinsettia flowers. The small poinsettia flowers are created with using Heartfelt Creations poinsettia dies. I used dimensional magic to lacquer the big red poinsettia flower. Lots of glitter to be found as well, haha. You know me in the meantime lol!

Christmas of gold

Handmade Christmas card with angel and golden wings

Good evening!

Another Christmas card delivery today! A Christmas with golden wings. That’s what this Christmas will be! This is an embossed card where I used a pretty vintage image of this sweet little angel girl which I gave the golden wings. I decorated her with creme ribbon roses and surrounded her with golden stars and bling bling. The inside of the card has double pages. There is plenty of room for writing a favorite message. There is a pocket with room for a special notecard as well. I hope you like the inspiration.

I decided to not setup my Christmas tree this year. I simply can’t due to health related issues. So my husband and I decided to keep it small and only put on some lights here and there, and I will buy some fresh floral settings. Somehow it feels good to keep it moderate this year. It is about the birth of Jesus and the beautiful light. That’s enough! Next year I hope to feel better. We’ll see! Joyeux Noël!
