Christmas Medallions

Hi everyone, hope you all had a good weekend… apologies for not having much crafty stuff to share with you all, but work has been crazy busy and i have not had time to do much else than work,eat and go to bed ;-)

I ordered a new die and it arrived last week, it’s the medallion die by Brenda Walton.. so I finally got a chance to play with it today..

I used some SEI christmas patterned papers from the silver valley collection

I also added some felt flowers that I have had in my stash for a very looong time by 3 bugs in a rug, and some wild orchid crafts resin flower embelishments.

I’m planning to add these to tags and christmas cards
