Merry Christmas to You



This is a 5.5 inch card. I used my new ScorPal to emboss a ¼ inch line around the edge of the front of the card. A border was created with the Martha Stewart String Lace border punch on a 5 inch square piece of card stock. On the next layer, I use the ScorPal to create ¼ inch line across a 4 inch piece of card stock (going both directions) then edged it with a Krylon 18kt Gold Leafing Pen. I punched a border on another 3 ¼ inch square piece of card stock with the Martha Stewart Swirling Lace punch. The greeting Heartfelt Creations "HCPC 2134 Holly Border-Cardinal Branch PreCut set"  was gold embossed on this square. Three poinsettias from the Heartfelt Creations "HCPC 2291 Regal Poinsettia 2 Precut set"  were gold embossed then cut out with the matching die. I cut between each petal to give the flower dimension. They were attached with glue dots. Punched leaves were added under each flower. A double organdy white bow was added to complete the card.
