Season's Greetings

Hello there my crafty friends!  Today's card is the result of a bit of leftover from an earlier card.  I started by stamping a snowflake all over a piece of cobalt blue card.  I embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I used the Double Stitched Ovals and cut a large oval out of it (I used the aperture piece on another card).  Next I used the Cut Corner Rectangles and cut a thin white frame.  I added mounting foam to the back of the frame to raise it.  I embossed a piece of white card with the Falling Snow embossing folder.  I used it as a backdrop and added my frame to it.  I recessed the centre piece from the frame down into it.  Next, I added the stamped oval piece in the middle of the frame.  I cut the Season's Bold die in white and added it across the oval.  I stamped the word greetings and cut it out and added it below the bold Season's die.  I made three poinsettias out of vellum using the Classic Poinsettia die.  I seated them on the lower portion of the frame.  The card was completed with white and cobalt blue mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 3/4"  x  8 1/4"  in size.   All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, a beautiful card and as always I love your vellum poinsettias. I have been busy stamping, die cutting and using embossing folders (all of them your products of course) ready for a batch making session whilst catching up with Jamie's shows which were interesting as usual.

Happy Birthday Donna, hope you have/had a good day.
