We have a new challenge over at Holly Jolly which is to use Christmas Florals.
The challenge is sponsored by Fred She Said Stamp and I have used the Christmas Poinsettia Lantern set. For my card I have used the coloured images and the script from the set.
The layout for my card is inspired by the sketch at Mojo Monday and boy does this sketch have lots of layers.
I have used Real Red, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White and Basic Black cardstock. The Modern Label and Scallop Edge Border punches. As well as the new Window Frames Framelits Die.
After I cut out the image with the Window Frames die I sponged a little Marina Mist on the top part of the image and Soft Suede on the bottom to extend the colours and add some colour to the edges.
Along with lots of layers and heaps of dimensionals, I have cut out the images a number of times and layered various parts to create some depth.
Of course I have added ‘bling’ as well as some Whisper White ribbon. I have also used the Vintage Wallpaper and Square Lattice Embossing Folders.
Here is my card:
Stamp set: Teeny Tiny Sentiments, Fred She Said Christmas Poinsettia Lantern

Ink: Real Red, Marina Mist, Soft Suede
Accessories: Whisper White Satin Ribbon (retired), Modern Label Punch, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Corner Punch, Window Frames Die, Vintage Wallpaper & Square Lattice Embossing Folders, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive

I am quite happy with the end result - I love the colours together and the various layers of the card.
