Season's Greetings 38

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, August 18, 2010 @ 10:13 AM | , ,

Happy Wednesday! I have been having making Christmas cards - have you started yet? I have another one to share today using the Christmas Past Collection from Graphic 45.

This week over at the create blog, Paige has challenged all of us paper-crafters to create some handmade flowers so I pulled out the Spellbinders™ S4-219 Nested Poinsettias die templates & made a lil' Poinsettia to showcase on my card. For sketch inspiration, I played along with the girls over at Card Patterns. Please be sure to visit the site & see all the wonderful samples of inspiration :).I tried something to showcase the Season's GREETINGS sentiment. While cutting/embossing the Very Vintage Labels No.2 image, along with a S4-162 Labels Two die template, I centered & adhered a S4-112 Classic Ovals SM die template to create a window, then I popped up the frame with some 3D Foam Squares to add a bit of dimension. Thanks for looking! Have a great day!

Supplies Used:

Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S4-162 Labels Two, S4-219 Nested Poinsettias, S4-112 Classic Ovals SM, S4-242 Big Scalloped Borderabilities® Petite, GC-001 Grand Calibur

Waltzingmouse Stamps: Very Vintage Labels No.2, Very Vintage Christmas
