Morning all, today it is my turn to do the Blog Project at Little Claire's Designs.  I hope you like what I have come up with.

I met up with Steve at the Ross Papercraft Show, here in Edinburgh last Saturday and bought some goodies, that I used on this project.

Little Claire's Products Used

I started off, printing the Poinsettia Digi Stamp onto White Card, I use - Xerox Colotec A4 250gsm White Card.  I Die Cut around the image, and also Die cut a piece of the Glitter Sparkle Sheet to the same size. I coloured the image - using Spectrum Noir blend-able Pencils.  For the Red I used - Nos. 007, 024, 027 and 106, for the Green, I used 044, 045 and 047. After colouring, I added the Glitter Sparkle Sheet over the image,  I then die cut a piece of black card onto the the image. I added some Gold Glitter Sparkles to the centre of the coloured image.

I then Matted and Layered the Green Snowy Ombre Paper to a piece of Black Card. I cut a piece of the Pink Snowy Ombre Paper and Ran it through my big-shot with the FREE Stars embossing folder that came with a recent Making Cards Magazine - Christmas Edition. I then added Green Ribbon around the layered embossed card.

Using Dewdrops Ink Pad - Cottage Ivy, I stamped the Dinkie Postcard Stamp - Happy Christmas onto a piece of white card, then trimmed around it, took the Cottage Ivy ink pad around the edge of the stamp.  This was then added to the Embossed card with a brad from my stash.

Finally I added the matted and layered image onto the card, then added some Card Candi to the corners to finish.

I hope you like how this card turned out..Thank you for visiting.
