Christmas Fred's Flowers & Another Cuttlebug Holly

These are two more cards I made before I went away.



The first is using Fred's Flowers Christmas Poinsettia Reds collection available from Fred, She Said. As well as the flower, the 'merry christmas' background and patterned paper are also from the collection. I've used a gate-fold for this card, added a gold embossed personal sentiment from Kanban above the flower and added a gold ribbon bow to the bottom. Gold outline tape runs down each side. The flower is made up with 2 sets of leaves and 2 sets of larger petals and 1 of the smaller petals. I lightly creased each leaf and petal to give lift and shape, the leaves were then slightly curled under at the tips, a gold brad was used to hold all the layers together and the flower was then attached to the background using a little silicon.



I really love this CB Holly folder. I embossed onto green card then followed the outlines with a gold metallic sakura pen. The frosted berries and gold ribbon was a rescued embellishment from a christmas pressie last year, and I think it looks pretty good against the embossed holly. The berries are actually frosted gold and red, though the picture makes them look mulit-coloured. Mounted onto gold card. The sentiment and corners are gold peel-offs.
