Elegant Stag

I am in the midst of making my Christmas cards using our newest set of Christmas stamps.

This card is very Sue Wilson-stylee - quite simple but luxurious.

To start I took some pink cardstock, and used a corner rounding punch.

Laying the largest die from the Spellbinders Persian Motifs

onto the card, I ran it through the Grand Calibur using the embossing plate and mat. This embosses the snowflake-like shape into the card stock without cutting it.

I stamped out the Elegant Stag and stars

onto a die cut circle and mounted onto the centre of the Persian Motif with foam pads.

Using a lot of patience, I laid the Creative Expressions Gem Swirl

across the centre of the card - only pressing it into place once I was happy with the position of the swirl.

Once I had stamped out the sentiment I mounted the panel onto the card base.

The outside edge of the card was embellished using Black Pearly PVA glue.

I placed the larger dots first, then randomly filled in the gaps with smaller dots and left to dry overnight.
