Petaloo and Authentique Blog - Featuring Home Decor for the Holidays

Welcome to the Christmas Blog Hop with Authentique and Petaloo

If you would like to join along at the Petaloo blog, then you can click here and join the fun at Petaloo to be included in the Prize drawing. 
The Petaloo Team has been busy creating holiday projects from the new Christmas releases from Authentique.   Make sure to stop here each day of the blog hop for your chance to win some fabulous prizes featuring Authentique papers and Petaloo flowers. 

   I chose to create with the Authentique Classic Christmas collection.  I was drawn to the sweet prints and gorgeously classic patterns.   I also know that the Petaloo flowers I selected for my project were absolutely perfect accents.  What a fun pairing.

I created a home decor piece with an accompanying card.  (This set is available in my ETSY shop, by the way - click here).  
  The wooden tree form was purchased at a big box craft store.  My job was to gussy it up.   Below is the table top festive tree decorated with strips of Classic Christmas 6x6 paper  and embellished with some holiday releases from Petaloo:  
The image below features a flower collection that isn't traditionally a holiday release.  The  Petaloo Botanica Vintage Velvet Dogwood in Red  and by simply adding   Petaloo Vintage Velvet Holly Leaves , it's instantly transformed into a Christmas flower.

I do love how you can combination everyday Petaloo flowers thoughtfully and have them look perfect for a holiday card, project, gift or layout -endless possibilities.  

Here's a close up of the main floral cluster featuring the Petaloo Flowers - Pine Pick w/Cones and Berries , Petaloo Vintage Velvet Holly Leaves  and Petaloo Red Burlap Textured Poinsettia  once again.  I added a sweet little ephemera to the cluster from the Authentique paper collection.   

This is the matching card I made for a gift set.  I used the same papers and the same Petaloo flowers for a cohesive look.   The wonderful patterns of the paper are so much fun to use.  

 (This set is available in my ETSY shop while it lasts -  along with many other items , by the way - click here).
