Christmas Pudding

Doesn't this Christmas Pudding look delicious!  

The holidays are filled with so many wonderful things, which include eating things that are special for the holiday. The Joset Designs Christmas Pudding die set helps us celebrate this tradition. I have never made a Christmas Pudding, but after working with this die, that will be one of the new recipes I must try.

This is the card I designed for my Elizabeth Craft Designs design team blog post at this LINK.
Start with a 7 x 5 1/2 inch card base. Cover the front with either design paper of your choice or use another piece of white card stock as I did with scored lines down the front, to create stripes.
Christmas Pudding

Use the Joset Designs Christmas Pudding die set to die cut all the pieces using the White Soft Finish Cardstock. This cardstock has a beautiful textured finish. Sponge the "cake" die cut using Tea Dye Distress Ink, then sponge Aged Mahogany Distress Ink along the bottom. Sponge a little Tea Dye Distress Ink along the bottom portion of the icing.  
Using Gold Metallic Shimmer Sheetz, die cut the "trims" for the cake plate using a Metal Adaptor Plate. Glue these pieces to the plate then add small Red Glitter Dots to the scallops along the bottom of the plate. Glue the icing to the top of the pudding and attach to the cake plate.  Use a piece of white card stock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on one side to die cut the Holly and Berries. Use Silk Microfine Glitter; I used True Red for the Berries and Go To Green for the Holly Leaves. Glue to the top of the pudding.

Use the largest Els van de Burgt Studio Dotted Scallop Circle die to die cut a circle, using design paper of your choice. Cut the circle in half about 1 1/2" from the bottom of the edge, to use as a doily. I used a Gold Line Peel Off Sticker for a trim along the edge, just above the scallops of the die cut.  Use a thin line gold Line Peel Off Sticker to go around the top edge of the scallop trim on the plate, and on the two gold trim die cuts on the bottom of the cake plate.

 Die cut the A Way With Words Merry Christmas using Red Metallic Shimmer Sheetz. Use a Metal Adaptor Plate to die cut.

 Assemble the card as shown. To finish the card, use Gold Line and Corner Peel Off Stickers to outline the card front.
