Today's card is a little more 'traditional' looking.
I started by die cutting my sentiment with Creative Expressions Californian Collection, Matting Basics, I mounted that on another die cut from the same Californian Collection but Decorative Frames and I then Used the largest of that Die set to make a frame on my Coconut white card, that had been embossed with the Holly Swirls Embossing Folder. I put mounting foam on the back of this white card and matted it onto some silver card then on an A5 base card, I dropped my sentiment into the aperture that I had left.
To decorate around the frame I used the second smallest of the Poinsettia dies from Spellbinders, cut it out three times in red and then one in green for the leaves. I ticked some foliage underneath, pine dies by Impression Obsession and their 'leafy Branch' die and also CE Holly Sprig die, I put three poinsettias on top of the foliage at the bottom and a small one at the top to try and balance the design, I finished by adding some flat back crystals on to the centres of the flowers.
let me know what you think, I always love reading your comments
Just to let you Milo is much better it was self inflicted, he managed to get into Becca's room and eat most of a bag of white doggie chocolates, naughty boy, I would like to think that he knew better than to eat them again, but I have my doubts!
oh and Paul is home too! yay
Here is a close up of the flowers xxxx
