Despite the flurry of white fluffy stuff drifting down yesterday evening I awoke to green fields, blue skies and a stiff breeze!
Anyway if you have some of the white fluffy stuff I hope it doesn't spoil your weekend.
Christmas draws ever closer so it's perhaps fortuitous that the latest challenge at Fantasy Stampers is
For my DT card I went with traditional colours and imagery, red, green and gold plus holly and the poinsettia. Not sure when that delight made it onto cards but I've a feeling it is not native to these parts!
As it's a STAMPING challenge at Fantasy Stampers, I had to use some stamping as well as this gorgeous die cut poinsettia. The leaves were stamped using my Dee's Artsy Impressions Christmas Bell Medley from STAMPlorations in green DI then coloured in Copics and fussy cut them.
To make the base I cut a white panel and a slightly larger one in gold mirror card. I wanted an aperture so cut a circle in the two panels and base card before embossing the white one with an EF, Nellie Snellen I think. The poinsettia is the same one from LeCrea cut in red and the flowers added with yellow crystals. The holly berries were made using scraps and a hole punch. The white flowers surrounding the central aperture were punched with centers of gold Pearly Doodles.
I stamped the sentiment from Crafters Companion on the inside but made sure it was central to the aperture so you could see it when the card was closed.
OK, that's about it.
Please check out the rest of the DT here and why not take the opportunity to get another Christmas card made for your stash.
