Blue Scene...

Happy Wednesday,

I have to admit it isn't often I say this but I  really pleased with how this card turned out!  I know its another Christmas Card and I will be moving on to less Christmas next week however I really wanted to share this one!

I stated by letter pressing the snowflake circle embossing folder using izink pigment ink pad in navy blue.  I then stamped the centre panel using the same ink and my Christmas Scene clear stamp set.  I cut this with the stitch dot circles mating it on yale blue, silver mirror card and more of the white mounting them in the centre of the embossed panel.

I dressed this with the Amy Design poinsettia dies cut in white velum.  I used each of the three sizes of flower folded and mounted to make a really 3D poinsettia.  I added these on the top of a spray of foliage cut from dies in my stash with silver holly added between the flowers.

I framed the piece using the stitch for and plain squares form press cut in Yale blue lustre print card, white card and silver mirror card.

I mounted this onto a few layers of the blue white and silver and added it to a large 8x8" card blank.
