Christmas card

Hi everyone- just thought I'd pop on & share with you a card I made for our son James & his partner, Charlotte. I can post it now as they have received it.
I fancied using some kraft kard as I like how it looks & feels.
I made the card from an A4 sheet folded in half to ake an A5 card. I embossed the card using a 'dotty' Darice embossing folder.
I then cut a smaller piece of kraft card & embossed using a Couture Creations embossing folder - Message In A Tree.
 I went over the embossed area with gold Rub'n'Buff and then with soe rusty red mica powder.
I matted the smaller card onto some white card then adhered this to the main card using foam pads.
I found some paper in my stash to give a border along the bottom.
Die cut a poinsettia & a fir bough. Used the gold Rub'n'Buff on the poinsettia & some stickles on the fir bough.
Added a bit of bling in the centre of the poinsettia.
Made a bow & added this to the top of the card. Hope you like it.
I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas & hope you enjoy whatever you're doing.
Thankyou for visiting my blog over the past year & leaving lovely comments - much appreciated.
