Merry Christmas Special Friend

A Christmas card for Christmas day sent to my very special friends. I really like Julia Watts work and have watched her demo a few times and this was done in tribute to her style.

There are ;ots of layers to this card. The background has been randomly stamped and then distresses around the edge. The Merry Christmas has been stamped on the square card then the merry has been stamped again on a separate piece of card and covered on a layer of glitter using double sided adhesive. with lots of die cutting for the flowers and leaves from Sue Wilson dies. I was pleased with the outcome.
Happy Christmas to all my friends and blog visitors.

Creative Artiste DT

Well I would like to announce that I have been asked to join the Design Team for
and this is my first project for the December challenge which is 
Anything Goes.

I have always enjoyed making and altering things so now I can enjoy playing for a reason.

As Christmas is rapidly approaching I thought I would make my first project a Christmas one.
So I have made a box of Poinsettias. 
It starts out as a card in a box base, but I have folded the side down and shaped them to make it look a little different. The die cut poinsettias have been die cut using a Sue Wilson dies and Spellbinders dies. The top edge of the box and the top of the back have been edged with cotton lace.

I have die cut a variety of leaves including some Tim Holtz dies to fill in below the flowers. Then just added some berry stalks, tiny pinecones, and other leaves to add extra dimension.

I am really pleased to be working with some very talented ladies at Creative Artiste. Please pop over to the challenge blog and see what lovely things they have made too. 

I would like to enter this box in the following challnges
