Deck the Halls – by Heidi Blankenship

Published by at 8 10 am under Uncategorized

Deck the halls with boughs of holly …

That tune always puts me in the Christmas spirit, but not more so than Heidi’s watercolored card today. She gold embossed her holly images and watercolored them with Distress Inks. I really like how she used them as adornment around her gold framed shaker – super pretty!!! Take a look:

Yes, that is a shaker card – see the pretty red, gold and crystal sequins?

Heidi used a clear bag as her shaker window and she’ll show you how on her blog post.
