Warmest Wishes

I'm working later this morning but doing my usual early morning awake routine...come 8am I'm ready for bed again! So I thought I would make good use of the time and post another card. I got my crafty fix yesterday and made good progress on my daughters christmas card so I'm a happy chappy...will post that one after christmas as she reads my blog!
I  have really enjoyed using this stamp and die set and they have been used for the majority of my cards this year. this time I've went for  a bit of bling and sparkle 

warmest wishes 

I used vellum for the poinsettias which  I also stamped and heat embossed before die cutting .I did learn though not to pull too hard when shaping the petals or you pull the petals off! took several damaged flowers to get that right!

Again I used my favourite silent night paper pack; I can see this will be needing replaced as I love all the papers and using it up fast. Time I  got ready for work, I  hope you have a nice and relaxing day whatever your up too and thanks for visiting...Crafty hugs and I hope you have a good week ahead Andrea X

I used the following materials-
white linen base card
green and silver mirror card layering die cuts 
vellum- stamped and silver heat embossed poinsettias and die cut
silent night paper - matted  with green mirror card  
Sentiment-sweet memories set die cut circle-layered onto scalloped circle coloured copics and glitter
