 Hello everyone,

This is another I made a while ago, no process pictures  but I used up so much stuff and used some really old dies, must get them out and do it again..

This is a lovely poinsettia die, but I used it wrong..I mean
I never pinched the petals to make them look 3D, I roll them which was 
harder on my fingers, but I've since learned.

The leaves got a blob of white Nuvo drops to
resemble berries and the sweet little bird was cut from a 12 x12
papers sheet....a long time ago.,

I cut a cute doily in matt gold and added a flower and some berries...

The edges were distressed and all the layers puffed up.

A simple organza bow in gold and the red ribbon threaded through a die cut border, love it..
It's a Marianne Designs wavy border die, had it for years..

a slight side view..

and all finished...

You can tell I made it a while ago as it is 6x6 square and I don't do that anymore,
the postage here was shocking for square cards.

So there we go, thank you so much for stopping by,
The backsplash is complete and off on Monday to the glass place..
IThe person who ordered it is coming for dinner tonight and tsking it with her when she leaves, it was a labor of love and I'm exhausted, no more please..
it was like making 8 Steampunk cards all in a row..phew..

I'll see you tomorrow..

I agree if I can't hand deliver a square card then I am not sending one. That is gorgeous and with all that lovely dimension too!, such a cute image to go with it and love the touches of lace and ribbon with it, quite the beauty!

A beautiful card Chrissy. Our post prices go on thickness and they hardly have to have any embellishments before you get charged extra. That is why most of my cards are quite flat, but I do love adding flowers etc. x
