Christmas Greetings

Hi  Bloggers

Today's offering is a Christmas card made with Sue Wilson's Ornate Pierced Rectangles from her Noble die collection.
I started by using a polka dot mask over some Ruby Red foundation card and spreading  some red glitter frosting paste through the mask and leaving it to dry over night.
I used Sue largest dies from this set and then the fourth one down to create a frame out of coconut white card.
Then I wanted just a thin black matt to go behind this frame, so I  used the largest die again, but just embossed  a piece of black card. Then I used my poky tool to score a line around the outside of this die and then cut it out with scissors. This provided me with the matt that also had the pierced edging all the way around.
I stamped the Heartfelt Creations Christmas Poinsettia stamp onto red card  and embossed this in black and used the coordinating die set to cut them out and create the flowers. I added a black pearl from my stash to the centre of each Poinsettia and added some black organza ribbon behind some of the flowers.
For the sentiment I used a Tattered lace die and I added a white pearl to the 'dot' of the I.
I then matted all this on to an embossed white background using a  Spellbinders folder and then added matts of red and black to frame the card.
I am also entering my offering on the  challenge blogs below:
