Christmas Card Featuring Prima's Victorian Christmas by Frank Garcia

Prima's Victorian Christmas by Frank Garcia!
If you con't have this collection yet, go grab it up.  It's a Christmas collection and yet, once the holidays are over, you'll still be pulling this out and using the gorgeous non-holiday prints....stripes and polka dots?  Can't get more versatile than that!!

This is a card that I created for my parents.  I put a variety of flowers in this card you can can see a good array of the collection.  

This collection has such rich warmth - perfect for a vintage flair.  I actually used the 12x12 papers here.  I also have one of Prima's newly released dies as a background.  

Scroll down a bit further and I'll show you how I made the base of my card.  But first a few more close ups. 

Frank added some gorgeous edges to the flowers in this collection.  Some have "sugared" edges with beautiful chunky crystals on the edges,  Other are outlined in festive gold glitter. 

OK so where can you snag these papers?  At the Flying Unicorn of course. You can find the collection right here

So these are the layers I started for the base.  I used a kraft colored pre-folded card because the warm kraft is such a great complimenting neutral for this collection. 

I framed up the card like this:

Next I added a strip of texture - some neutral burlap. 
And this is how I used the Prima Doily Die cut. I used it as more of a circle border.  Added cardboard over it for some dimension.  
I'll follow up with a few more close ups of the floral cluster.  I love the large flower as a gorgeous anchor piece.  My fluster is then filled in  with  the smaller ones and snippets of the sprigs. 

Thanks for looking and stopping.
