This time using another new die from Create and Craft. The fireplace - a set of 5 dies:- fire, fire surround, holly garland, stocking and stocking top.
I cut the fire and fire surround in a glossy black card. Then with the fire I cut a small piece of white card and using promarkers "created the fire" and stuck to the back of the fire. The holly garland I cut out twice to go the length of the mantelpiece. I added "holly berries" by drawing on dots in groups of 3 along the length. I then added a tartan "rug" in front of the fire.
This was then backed onto red card which I had used to cut out SP "Tranquil moments" largest die. This was then backed onto tartan paper. I don't know why tartan is always connected to Christmas (maybe it's because of shortbread biscuits !!) but it goes so well.
The flourish on either side is from Memory Box " Fauntleroy crest". The poinsettia and wording are by Robert Addams dies.
To me this card would be more for a male, even with the flower....do you agree?
