Covered my card base with Best Creations Merry Christmas Glitter DP and then added a strip of striped Best Creations (B side) that I matted with a snippet of charcoal shimmer card. Left a bit more of the charcoal at the bottom and punched it with a Martha Stewart border punch.
Matted my image with another snippet of charcoal shimmer card...sort of a satiny glitter. Then matted again with a snippet of green. Tucked a couple of Dollar Store sparkly fabric snowflakes under the image and then layered up a trio of poinsettias. I made the middle one slightly different and slightly smaller, than the other two. Now I can add 3 more to my flower ticker at the top of my blog. I have used over one hundred flowers so far this year. I have a long ways to go to meet my target of 365! Guess I had better start trawling Pinterest for more flower card ideas.
The brads are MME I Believe and were part of a RAK I won a while back from Aliwynn, a cardmaker and scrapbooker at the old Two Peas In A Bucket. To see the whole collection that I won, click here.
I was very lucky indeed.
The sentiment is from a little box of sentiments I stamped a couple of years ago. I like to take the wee scraps of copic paper leftover after I cut out images...and stamp sentiments on them right away. That way, I have sentiments ready and waiting and the colours of the white paper match! I edged round this wee stamp with some Prima, Invild Bolme green chalk ink.
Threw on a trio of large green rhinestones to help balance the flowers and added teensy clear rhinestones randomly on the background DP snowflakes.
This was a fun card to make and I think i got caught up in the Xmas moment cuz I caught myself humming a Christmas carol!!!
