Time for a new Merry Little Christmas Challenge!

 Happy March!
Hope everyone is well.
It's time for a new challenge at Merry Little Christmas Challenge blog!

Here's my design team inspiration make.
LOTS of die cuts on this one.
I had a really hard time photographing this card well!

Supply List:
Recollections white card stock
SU dark red card stock
Basic Grey Fruitcake designer papers
Corner punches
CAS-ual Friday Four Petals dies
Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia, Mystical Embrace and Fancy Tag dies
Sizzix TH Holiday Greens Thinlits and Tattered Pinecone dies
HOTP Tiny Flowers and Leaves die
Glitter gel pens (gold and red)
Fabric label sentiment
Inside - Crafters Companion and MFT sentiments stamped with Memento Rhubarb ink

I chose this Splitcoaststampers sketch for my layout design. For the Layer 3 element, I used a fancy scallop-y cover plate die and I treated Layer 5 as a mat and added a designer paper layer on top of it. Otherwise, I followed the sketch pretty well. You just cannot see it clearly for all the greenery dies adorning the poinsettia, the leaf veins of which were dry-embossed and embellished with gold glitter. I also punched out several little circles and colored them with the glitter pens.

Inside I stamped sentiments by Crafters Companion and My Favorite Things with Rhubarb Stalk Memento ink.

One last look.
I hope you will join us at MLCCB. The challenge begins today and ends on April 15th, so you have plenty of time to enter up to 8 Christmas creations.
Have a great day and thanks for the visit!

See my Supply List above - lots of die cuts were used
