It's beginning to look a 'Lot like CHRISTMAS'

It's beginning to look a lot like CHRISTMAS isn't it
and how timely is our Hostess Sharyn's colour choices?
RED GREEN GOLD
 
 
I recently bought the Elizabeth Crafts
Quietfire Merry Christmas die
and found a beautiful card by Selma Stevenson
HERE which I cased.
My card stock is a shimmery gold card stock. I have used this
also to cut out my Merry Christmas die and leaves.
Matted with red and another shimmery paper in green.
 
I used the following dies -
Spellbinders - Big Scallop Rectangles
Merry Christmas die as above
Poinsettia flowers and leaves are by Marianne Designs
and I inked the edges in gold/red.
MS leaf and fern punches
Cuttlebug Christmas embossing folders
The centre flower has tiny beads to finish.
 


Hope you will pop over to  OUR BLOG
and check out all the amazing cards by our
November Guest Louise
and the Talented Design Team.
I'm sure these traditional colours will
inspire you to create a few more Christmas Cards
or you may want to go in a different direction.
Hope to see you there.

REMINDER -  For October & November Only:
If you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our October and November challenges,
you'll be in the running to be chosen as one of two
Guest Designers for the month of January 2016!
The Team will be taking a 2 week break in December,
so we will not have a Guest Designer for December.
