Oh I've had a lovely day, washing on the line, house nice and clean so I've been able to craft nearly all day, bliss.
I made this easel card today with some black card, cut some holographic red card which I punched using my EK Success border punch, I used some scrap silver mirror board to create the border strips and the flowers using my new Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers Die, I've used some bead spacers and jewel brads for the middle of the flowers. The Noel is a die cut which I've decoupaged. I used the greeting to create the plate for the easel section to sit behind. I would never have spent this much time on just one card in the run up to Christmas so I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to the ladies who are running the various Christmas challenges throughout the year.
The die cut on this card was on the same sheet so as I had all the same colours etc out I thought I would do both at the same time. I used an 8 inch square blank for this as the die cut was so big especially after I mounted it on some mirror board. I cut a strip off the side, punched the border and punched the corners of the mirror board. I used my bling templates to create the sentiment, I find these templates so useful.
I'm entering the cards in the following challenges:
Winter Wonderland-Punch it out
ABC Christmas Challenge-N is for Noel.
