H2H - Christmas is Coming Early

Welcome to this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge! 

The theme this week is Christmas is Coming Early. That very thought may terrify some of you... but it's a reminder that Christmas truly is right around the corner. 

I have been working on Christmas cards for a few weeks already, although I feel like I will never have enough made by early December. This challenge allowed me to create yet another one to add to my total. 

I used the Comfort and Joy poinsettia paper as the background and created a shaker along the side. I wanted the images to be coloured in similar colours to coordinate with the paper so I chose a holly sprig, an ornament and a group of pinecones. All were coloured using Tri-Blend markers and each square was made into a small shaker to which I added some artificial snow. The sentiment was stamped in Candy Apple and cut with the Stitched Rectangle Thin Cuts. It was mounted within the outer stitched frame. I brushed the veins on the poinsettias with the clear shimmer brush but that isn't visible in the photograph.
