The new challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenge is 'Die-Cuts' and there are two great sponsors of the challenge this month. Di's Digis are giving a $10 voucher and Crafty Individuals are giving a Surprise Prize.
This is my final month as Guest Designer and it's also my favourite challenge as I love die-cutting! I have chosen four different dies for my card and as all the pieces of card were from my snippets drawer I'm popping across to the playground to enter the challenge at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.
Card blank: 6" x 4" white pearl
Dies: Memory Box 'Grand Merry Christmas' and 'Mini Holly Leaves', Spellbinders Shapeabilities D-Lites 'Garden Weave', Creative Dies 'Nesting Poinsettia' (magazine freebie)
Embossing: Kars tan embossing mat
Snippets: Dark red hammer, green matt, white pearl and gold holographic card
I die-cut the 'Merry Christmas', trimmed it and attached it to the lower half of the card blank leaving a small white border. I die-cut and embossed the 'Garden Weave' from white pearl card and attached it to the upper corner. I die-cut the outer poinsettia leaves from green card. I then die-cut and embossed three red leaves from red hammer card - these were shaped slightly before being glued together. I used the 'Mini Holly Leaves' die to cut the berries from the tiniest snippet of gold holographic card which I had kept 'just in case I ever needed a tiny piece of card' and today is the day! The berries were glued to the centre of the flower before it was attached to the front of the card with Pinflair glue.
I hope you like my card and look forward to seeing your creations.
