Joyful Greetings

 Hello crafters!  I used the Nordic Tiles embossing folder to add a bit of texture to the white background.  Next I cut the Christmas Rose Floral Panel in brown and black.  I shadowed it with the black die cut then cut it two more times, once in green and once in red.  I cut the leaves out of the green version and glued them on to the brown base die cut.  I cut the three flowers out of the red die cut and glued them on to the brown base die cut. I added clear micro beads to the centres.   I added a white backing piece to it then cut the decorative bases.  I cut the outer base in red and then added the smaller base in white on top of it.  I attached the floral panel on top of the base, then attached it to the left side of the card.  I used two sentiments to create the one used on the card.  I cut the Noble Joyful in red and added it to a white base.  I cut the word "greetings" from the Christmas Greetings sentiment then added it to a white shadow base.  I attached it under the Joyful sentiment.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 8 1/4"  x  8 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

I don't know what it is about the colour red but it sings the festive season, it stands out for other occasions but you've bought your dies alive with this beautiful colour scheme.

Happy Thanksgiving to you. What a lovely card today showcasing the pretty Christmas Rose and so nice to have an alternative to the poinsettia on a Christmas Card.

Happy Thanksgiving, Sue & all who are having today. I like this die in red. I don't actually think of flowers except poinsettia for Christmas so the red works better for me.
