White Christmas Cards - Last Day 12

There was seen a radiance
Glowing one night
Near the little maiden Mary
In blue and white.
"Lilies are not fairer,
"Roses more red,
Than the Child she sings to slumber,"
An angel said.


Today is day 12 and I am sharing the last 2 of my Christmas cards for 2014. Another special one for someone very special.

I hope you have liked what you have seen, perhaps even been inspired a bit.

This one is based on the thick sparkly white cardstock from American Crafts and the cream/pale blue striped one is from Authentique's Cozy collection.
Frosted berries dismantled from a Petaloo spray and stuck into the cluster. The robin is from a local craft store. Prima die cut leaves in gold paper and red bloom from Petaloo.


The second card is a variant of a card that I made in green. It was shared on day 6. 

Here the bloom is in red instead and I have used die-cut leaves in gold paper instead of a host of green felt mistletoe.

I will now take a break from blogging here over the Holidays. 

Wishing you all a beautiful Christmas with your family and friends!

So the shepherds ventured
Through the white cold,
And their eyes beheld the Infant,
An hour old.
Long they gazed and wondered,
Awkward in awe,
At the paramount perfection
Within their straw.
"Diamonds are but trifles!
"Rubies no gem!"
Cried the hearts that slaved for pittance
Near Bethlehem.
So it was forever,
After the night
When the little maiden Mary
Wore blue and white.
