Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Hi Bloggers.

John Lockwood has shown on Create & Craft today at 9am and 2pm launching his new Christmas Stamps and his 12 days of Christmas Paper Pad. Alot of the products that John has on his shows are available on my website -

I made this card for John using his paper pad and the lovely Poinsettia Elements Stamp Set -

I used a paper from John's 12 Days of Christmas Paper Pad for the background and matted it onto a piece of Coconut White Card.

I stamped the poinsettia image from John's Poinsettia Elements Stamp Set using Vermillion Archival. I cut it out using Spellbinders 5 x 7 Matting Basics B and inked through the die with Fired Brick Distress Ink using a Smoothie.

I cut the largest die in the Spellbinders 5 x 7 Holly Frame Die Set out of Rich Red Card.

 I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Vermillion Archival. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 17 and inked through the die with Fired Brick.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Red Two Tone Ribbon. I inked a couple of pieces of MDF from the Christmas MDF Mega Grab Bag using Fired Brick, added a 3mm White Pearl and added them to the bow. I made a couple of Stick Pins using Creative Expressions Stick Pin Elements - I used the Garnet Teardrop Beads.

I assembled the card as shown adding a White 8mm Pearl to each corner and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

Thanks for stopping by.
