Merry Christmas!

Good Morning All and a very Happy Thursday!

Still nice and warm for making Christmas Cards but I really enjoyed making this weeks project for Creative Expressions.  When the Classic Poinsettia Dies first came out, I fell in love with them so it was a great excuse to get them back out and have a play!

Anyway, let's get on with the card.............

Emboss a square of Foundations Ruby Card with the A4 Frosty Swirls Folder.
Matt and layer onto Coconut white and Ruby before adding to the blank card.

Did cut both parts of the Italian Collection-Calabria from Coconut White Card.
Attach the outer ring to the card with 3d pads and glue the inner one into position.

Ink up the Elegant Poinsettias stamp with Perfect Medium and stamp onto Ruby Card.  Heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer True White.  Cut out with the Festive Collection Classic Poinsettias Dies.
Shape the petals and glue together.  Glue onto the outer circle.

Cut out some Festive Collection-Filigree Poinsettia flowers from Coconut White Card.
Die cut the Trailing Ivy from the same white card.
Glue into position on the card.

Ink up the sentiment (from the A5 Seasonal Snow set) using Black Archival Ink and stamp onto Coconut White Card.  Heat emboss with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Powder.
Die cut with the Small Standard Circles.  Cut a matt from the Ruby Card with the same dies.  Attach to the card with 3d pads.

Just add some 8mm black pearls to the flower centres and you're finished!

Hope you like it!

Well, that's it for this week...I'll be back next Thursday with another Christmas project.  I will pop on here Sunday to announce the winner of the wall hanging.

Many thanks for visiting and leaving comments.  Would you like more giveaways of the samples I make, just let me know in the comments?

Until next time, have a happy, crafty week!
