Festive greetings 49 and Market fans! As Christmas is upon us, I thought I would put together a Christmas layout to celebrate the festive season. Using the Winters Edge Collection, this is my layout.

The base page is the Winters Edge “Snowdrift” paper. I have used the Bohemian Damask Stamp and Vintage Photo stamp pad to stamp the background. I have then used the frame from the Winters Edge Laser Cuts sheet to frame my photo. The “notes” behind the photo frame are the booklets from the Old School Collection Laser Sheet. I have then added the banner from the Winters Edge laser sheet to the top of the frame with foam tape, and added the “Be Merry” words.

The flowers have been added in layers on either side of the photo, including adding the laser cuts between these flowers. The cones have been curled inwards to created a rounded effect. I have added some twine in the buttons from the laser sheet.

I have also bent the holly leaves up to create extra dimension. Once finished, I have added some micro art stones. The memories title is a Dusty Attic chipboard. I have added some chalking around the edges of the design.
