Foamiran Poinsettias

Morning all, it's still absolutely vile weather here, so heating on and huddled in my craft room.  This card was made around the oval frame, which I found when I was clearing out my scrap 'boxes', lol.

The card I've started with a 8" x 8" blank and the backing papers are from Hearts Designs ~ Hearts & Roses Christmas digi kit and I've used tumbled glass distress ink around the edges.  I've matted this backing paper onto white card and edged it with glitter flakes.

The sentiment was also printed and cut from the same digi kit and my frame was cut using my cameo silhouette.  I then sprayed the frame with glue and covered that with the glitter flakes too.

The poinsettias were cut out of white foamiran and I've used Pentel oil pastels to add a little bit of colour, I purchased these from the works.  All the stamens were bought from Aliexpress.
The cute little ice skates were printed from Betty & Berties Christmas digi kit, again by Hearts Designs and the white foliage is a die by Sue Wilson called Berry Bough.

I've used some white raffia for the bow and used Pine Cone & Greenery die set
for the foliage, the pine cones were cut in pale grey metallic card and I've inked through the die with moonlit white Brilliance ink to give the appearance of snow.

For inside I've used the same backing paper then used Spellbinders labels 1 for the frames.

I've again cut the cute ice skates and berry bough die and I've also used a Woodware holly punch.

The sentiment is Merry Little Christmas die by Sue Wilson.






Thanks for looking and any comments you may leave.
