Holiday Card


Taking a short break from using fabric and decided to get back to basics by making a holiday card. The background and image are both holiday tissue paper adhered to cardstock with natural beeswax. I even added a layer of old sewing pattern tissue over the background to give it that aged look that I love. I hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by my nest!

Take Care - Robin
