Today for the Spellbinders 12 days of Christmas blog hop and reveal I have the privilege of showing the S5-223 Heirloom Reflections die sets.
It is a stunning and elegant die set and as soon as I saw it, I thought of antique Wedgewood blue ornaments with a gorgeous textural ivory overlay. I love the depth of Wedgewood blue china pieces and their simple elegance. In creating this card, I wanted to capture the feel of a beautiful ornament lying in its padded box just before being hung on the Christmas Tree during a cozy family gathering.
