With this card I decided to also stamp into the largest size bauble. I had the stamp from Heartfelt creations that matched the spellbinders die. The Image of the Poinsettia is on the stamp. I decided to colour in completely the image in black so that it would then become an outline. I cut the poinsettia (from Spellbinders) out of quite thick vellum and added a red gem to the centre. The background design is achieved by using an embossing folder on core'dinations paper and gently rubbing over with sandpaper to reveal the core colour underneath. I cut out the wording using Spellbinders Presto Punch "Plain Jane lower case dies. The ribbon is then added to the side.
... and finally, a winter scene. I cut the largest bauble out from the middle of the card then cut another one in white card- which I embossed with dots. I then inserted the white cut out into the space from the background card so that it would remain level and flat. I then cut out 3 reindeers from Memory Box " leaping deer" die in white card and using blue inks made the 3 different shades of blue. The bottom scene is also from memory box "Country Landscapes" which I also inked in blue to give a bit of shading. The small deer and the snowflake is from Marianne Collectables "COL1330". The wording is from Britannia dies.
