Today I'm back to Christmas again, so thought I would feature that lovely Memory Box Snowflake Corner Die which I was lucky enough to win last week. The stamps are from Chocolate Baroque - the first is the Poinsettia which I don't think is available any more, and the second is the Snowflake Shadow. This is approximately 6 inches square and is good on it's own or as a background.
This was quite a quick card as I already had a piece of the background from the last time I used the stamp, so I mounted this on a piece of Gold Mirri Card which I stuck onto a piece of red card measuring 6 x 4 inch when folded. I used the same red card for the Poinsettia, which I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with WOW Red Glitz EP, and for the centre I used a Gold Uni-ball Pen. I have to admit I did make the flower a bit smaller by cutting out the central part and adding some bits of the outside petals behind in order to keep the flower a bit smaller. The background is so pretty I didn't want to cover too much of it. I also coloured the background in a little with a gold and silver pen which I dont think shows up all that well in the photo. Lastly I used the Memory Box Snowflake Corner Die but used as flourishes. I cut three from the Gold Mirri Card, and the one in the middle I cut down a little. The sentiment which I stamped and heat embossed with WOW Gold EP, is from a freebie set which came with a magazine.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look today.
I've decided to enter this card in a challenge over at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.
Stamping Sensations have a Christmas challenge so I am entering that too.
