A Heavenly Christmas

Hello Everyone for my card today I have chosen to use the new Christmas Blessings set which will be available TOMORROW!!  :)

I started with a base of white and layered with Riding Hood Red and then more white that has been embossed with Swiss Dots EF.  Through the middle I've added some red taffeta ribbon.  For the frame, I've cut two panels using the Label 8 Nestabilites and then used the Small Oval Nestabilities to cut a hole in the red panel and the Large Oval Nestabilities to cut a hole in the white panel.  I then added a little texture and embossed the white frame with Swiss Dots as well.  I then stamped the sentiment from Christmas Blessings in Memento Tuxedo Black onto white card and used foam tape to pop the Label 8 frame on top of it to give a window effect.  The Poinsettia is from the Blessed Christmas set and has been stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copic Markers (R35, R37, R39, G24, G28) and then die cut using the custom Poinsettia Die - got to love that, NO fussy cutting!!!  :)  For a little sparkle I added some Gold Flower Soft to the centre of the poinsettia!  To finish I added some ribbon tails from under the Poinsettia and a red pearl to each corner!

Stamps - Christmas Blessings, Blessed Christmas
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, White, Red
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Poinsettia Die, Label 8, Large and Small Oval Nestabilities, Gold Flower Soft, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Copics, Foam Tape, Red Pearls.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!  :)
