Christmas Card Club Challenge #7- Christmas Flowers.
The sentiment is by Phill Martin, from a set called Snowflake sentiments,and the Poinsettia is a die by La Crea, and is smaller than the Spellbinders one. It was cut from another past NEC purchase, a deep red leather effect paper, which makes a glorious flower. Centre was filled with Glossy Accents and seed beads. A small flourish added under the flower. The snowflake, added top left, is from a Sue Wilson set, and hides a dent in the cardstock from the MM die, 😀.
This technique of backing the MM die cuts with patterned paper is being done to death I'm afraid, as I said, I have a whole pile on my desk I'm turning into an assortment of cards. But it lends itself so well to pretty much any reason for a card, you can change the mood/occasion just by the colour/style of paper you back it with. Especially good for those difficult Sympathy/ Condolence cards, as it's simple but elegant.
