Season's Greetings

I made this snippets card for the Christmas Draw Challenge in Pixie's Snippets Playground using snippets left over from other cards.

I die cut five stitched squares from gold mirri and five layered poinsettias from red embossed card.  I placed the card blank into my MISTI and laid the gold squares across it so I could see where to place the sentiment.  I removed the squares and stamped the sentiment a couple of times in dark red ink and then once in a brighter red ink so it matched the colour of the poinsettias.  I attached the gold squares with Pinflair glue to give me a little 'wriggle room' so I could line them up evenly and then attached the poinsettias.  The gold centres were die cut from teeny tiny snippets of gold mirri left over from die cutting the squares - these were then attached to the centre of the poinsettias.

To make this card I used:
     DL white matt card blank
     Lawn Fawn 'Outside In Stitched Square Stackables', All Occasion Dies 'Small Poinsettia' and Memory Box 'Mini Holly Leaves' dies
     Clearly Besotted 'Cheerful Christmas' stamps
     Versafine Crimson Red and Satin Red ink
     Snippets of gold mirri and red embossed card

I am entering the following challenges:
     AAA Cards - Christmas + Optional Twist Slimline
     Christmas Card Throwdown - Pick a Previous Challenge (I've chosen the March Theme Challenge - Slimline Cards)

A fabulously festive row of snippety poinsettias. Great layout too.

Hoping to see you up in the Snippets Playground Treehouse where I'm busy doling out the mince pies and mulled wine! Come and be merry once you've finished playing on the swings!

Hugs, Sarn xxx

The gold mats and beautiful red poinsettias look fabulous on this DL card Kath, and a great way of using up some leftover bits, and the sentiment tones perfectly with the flowers and love the gold centres too. x
