Rejoice In The Season

Hello crafters!  I started ths card with a piece of milk card for my background.  Next I used the small scalloped border off of the Scalloped Snowflake Border die set.  I cut six of them out of gold card and six out of red card.  I glued them to the edges of the card overlapping the border by crisscrossing the opposite colour.  For the focal element, I cut a multi-layered frame using the Round Corner Squares out of milk card and I added a thin red frame cut with the same dies on top.  I cut the Rejoice the Season in gold and glued it to the centre of the frame.  I seated the frame in a diamond orientation in between the side borders.  Using The Poinsettia Trio, I cut three red poinettias and added green leaves as accents around them.  The card was completed with milk and red mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8 1/2"  x  9 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, I love this beautiful card and the way you have taken one border die and made a new one 🙂. The poinsettias are always the star of the show.
Doreen and Trish, I too am concerned about Steph it has been too long since she commented.
