Blue Christmas

Hey there! 
with a Christmas card project
created with 5 different die sets from

I have some beautiful patterned holiday themed paper
and used one of them with floral corners as my 
jumping off point in designing this card.
I also gathered some metallic card stock
in blue and silver along with a plain white.

I did my die cutting next.

                                                     Precious Marieke Horn

I made a 5 x 7 inch white card base.
Cut a piece of matte metallic blue card to 5 x 7 inches
and adhered to card front.
I cut a 4.75 x 6.75 inch piece from a corner of the patterned paper
and attached to the card.

I began building my design by layering and attaching
the banner, cut from Silver and a coordinating patttern, to the card.

A blue die cut rectangle was added next.

The horn and sentiment, cut from silver, were added.

I decided to color the poinsettia and leaves which I cut out of white card stock
to match the patterned paper.

The finishing touches were the poinsettia, leaves and some pearls.
I added some glitter glue to the poinsettia.

I hope I've provided some inspiration for you to
 play and create with your dies and we'd love for you 
to come and join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.
