Wish

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -


For the background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Candy Stripe Embossing Folder.

I cut the sentiment out of Vintage Gold Card and the frame out of Black Card using the Couture Creations Christmas Wish Die Set.

I cut a couple of leaves out of Black Card using the Couture Creations Holly Branch Die.

I stamped a couple of the stamps from the Creative Expressions Shaded Poinsettia Stamp Set twice onto Vintage Gold Card using Jet Black Archival. I used the corresponding dies in Sue Wilson's Classic Poinsettia Die Set to cut them out. I shaped them and glued them together to make the flower. I added a few strands of Jute Twine underneath the flower.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 5mm Black Pearls and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.
