Elegant Christmas


Hi and Good Morning everyone :) 

First of all I would like to thank everyone who sent me birthday cards and gifts!  It is so much appreciated, and I was blown away :)   Thank you! 

My card today showcases some of Cheery Lynn  Designs most fabulous and elegant Christmas Dies!
 
I started off with a 6 x 6 scalloped blank card base and layered deep red DCWV cardstock and Bo Bunny paper, and then had a blast cutting the gorgeous festive designs.
 
The back panel has the snowflake mesh border overlaying the striped paper, and also the gorgeous Holly Lace Flourish.  I then stuck down the second mat and paper and added the stunning Christmas Star Tree using the angel wing to back in red card for impact.
 
I added the Holly corner, Merry christmas sentiment, and then combined Alisons Ribbons and the star strip from the Expandable Tiny Borders
 
I used the poinsetta flower strip for 3 quick and easy christmas flowers, and these are held together with pearl brads.  I then added some deep red berry pearls and some ice white pearls for a finishing frosty touch.
 
All dies used on this card are:

DL247 - Christmas Star Tree
B372 - Snowflake Mesh Border
B324 - Poinsetta Strip
B186 - Merry Christmas Set
B184 - Holly Corner
B335 - Alisons Ribbons
B215 - Expendable Tiny Borders
B148 - Holly Lace Flourish

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, and I hope you found time to enter our challenge this week where I theme is Borders and Edgers.

Have a smashing week!

Sure miss you and your cards. Keep checking and hoping you'll solve your internet problems.
Your cards are incredible! I firmly believe you have every die known to Cheery Lynn and most of the others as well, but your cards are always so carefully clean and well done. Hope we get you back soon.
