It is time once again for the girls in the
Christmas card club to show our latest cards.
The challenge was set by Margaret
and is for a card showing Poinsettia's any colour.
I'm woefully late in showing my card.
I have been trying to make cards of a different shape
and also to recycle the pile of old Christmas cards in my stash.
I knew I had this card front
so went on a search for a design to compliment it.
I found this tutorial by Valita
which I thought would be perfect.
I waited till this morning to take photos
but they still do not give the card justice
The individual strips of paper took
ages to cut and weave but I got there in the end.
Base of card is gold pearlised card stock.
I chalked round the edge and some of the lattice
with pearlised chalk too.
Poinsettia die is by Poppy Stamps No 861
cut from dark red card.
Rectangle die by Xcut.
Ribbon and pearls from my stash.
Inside of card.
I used Stickles on the flowers and leaves but
it doesn't show up here. It does IRL.
