These two cards were made in a quicker jiffy than they may appear. I cut a frame with a tag die for the card on the right, then used what popped out of the center for the card on the left. The poinsettias with foliage were done with one die which cuts everything at once -- both right and left. I die cut two bows. Die cut a designer paper panel for one card, and entirely covered the other card front. Supplies are listed below.
After all the cutting was done I colored the poinsettias with a red Copic. This die cuts enough flowers to double layer each one, but I only layered the largest flower. For balance I put the extra flowers in the lower corner. Dotted the flower centers with gold Stickles after assembly.
- Poppystamps Stitched Main Street Tags
- Memory Box Seraphine Laurel -- I'd like to thank my bloggie friend, Connie, for inspiring me to rush right out and buy this die set. Her summer birthday card with the flowers in pink is a must see, but she also mentioned doing them in red for Christmas. Brilliant!
- Impression Obsession Large Bow -- My favorite bow die. It has curly tails, but I most always cut them off.
- Taylored Expressions Stitched Rectangle Stacklets
Old timey sentiments from my collection. Designer paper is American Crafts Kringle and Co. from last year, I think.
I'll be back shortly. I haven't been photographing every card because sometimes it just gets to be too much. Who has the time? Merry, merry!
