Christmas Roses

Good Sunday Morning Ladies,
Todays card is a little different for Christmas, I made the little flower arrangement some time ago
and hadn't used it but as I was playing round I placed it on this Austrian Collection Background Die
cut and kind of liked it.  So I decided to put a matt of green card behind the white background.
I then cut a card base to fit the green card (a bit back to front I know) but I often work this way.
I matt and layered all the pieces together, using Pinflair Glue for a bit of dimension and popped the little arrangement of roses into the middle.
I found some little sentiment tags from an old kit (really old), matted that onto a little bit of matching
green card and placed it just under the flowers.
To finish I added some green gemstones to add a little Christmas Bling!
I hope you like the card, I know its not traditional Christmas but I think it works.

 Here is a close up of the flowers and below the sentiment.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, we are of into Swindon to start looking for Christmas gifts,
we have no idea what we are shopping for, so wish me luck!
I hope you all have a very peaceful sunday,
Huge Hugs

  1. Hi Sandra,
    Oh my giddy aunt! This is just so beautiful....I love the flower arrangement in the centre and the Austrian background die is so pretty. The green just fits perfectly with the flowers.
    I do so enjoy seeing your gorgeous creations.
    Enjoy your shopping trip and hope you manage to get every thing you want.

    Love Sheila xx

  2. Hi Sandra,
    I could say ditto, ditto, ditto after the lovely comment Sheila has left.
    This card really is so beautiful and your flower arrangement sits just perfectly on top of the gorgeous background. I love the colours you have used, green is one of my favourite colours and with your beautiful flowers it suggests Christmas to me ........ yes I love it.
    Hope the Christmas shopping goes well. Take care love Brenda xx

  3. Oh Sandra, this is so unusual for a Christmas card but it works brilliantly, I love it. That flower arrangement could be used on any card, so versatile.

  4. Sandra, this is another wow card, love the colour and that arrangement is stunning I can see this one being put in a frame, well I would do that as it is just so beautiful. Sandra thank you for your lovely comments on my baskets and gift bags, these are my first love -turning a few bits into a gift. I have only owned a die cutting machine for a year, so I am still at the practice stage. Where as you are so talented. Hope you are feeling a bit better. Hazel x

    Such a stunning card. I love the flowers that you have used with the Austrian die. I'll have to get the measurements for the flowers when we next meet. Hope you were able to do some shopping.

  7. HI Sandra
    I love your flower arrangement it really sets the card off. Sorry I am so late but I have been writing my Christmas cards. Hope your shopping went well. I didn't get anything on Saturday.

  8. Hi Sandra. How lovely, it is a little bit different for a Christmas card but it works a treat. I can see it being brought out every year. Hope the shopping went well. Take care.
