Bah Humbug - Challenge 43 - Die Cuts

This week's challenge over at Bah Humbug is die cuts.  I've just received my Memory Box Poinsettia Wreath and matching stamp so just had to use them!  I started off with a square white card blank and die cut sage green backing paper from my stash with nesties and then put it through again with an embossing folder.  I stamped the poinsettia image and then used the die to cut it out.  This was then coloured using Promarkers with a little added Glamour Dust to the centres of the flowers.  This was mounted onto gold mirri which had again been die cut using my circles dies.  I've placed a gold ribbon across as a border and added a strip of red card punched using my Martha Stewart snowflake punch.  The sentiment has been gold embossed and I've used Spellbinders Fancy Tags 3 to die cut.  This was curved slightly and placed over the centre of the wreath using Pinflair Glue Gel.  The finishing touches are a ribbon bow and some card candy in the corners.

Thanks for dropping by.

  5. I'm so happy seeing all these Memory Box dies, I've been a fan of this company for quite a while and my GDT uses one of their dies too, and last weeks GDT used their paper and stamps! This is such a lovely card Karen, great colours and great use of dies too.
