Christmas Dies used on a *LOVE* themed Card

Hello Crafty Friends!  I'm super excited about these NEW dies and have been creating loads of Christmas cards lately. I have used the NOEL die from Sue Wilson's Christmas Festive Collection Dies by Creative Expressions and separated the words for this LOVE themed card.  This framed NOEL sentiment Die can be seen below and purchased HERE:  

I simply cut out the LOVE section of this die (several times), and layered this for dimension then designed my card around all that LOVE. :) heheh
Another SW, CE die used here was the French Collection Border Corner and Tag die found HERE. I cut it in half to only use the decorative edges of the tag die.  The only other products used here were satin ribbon, Glossy Cardstock, White CS, EK Success Corner Punch, and loads of adhesive Pearls.

Poinsettia, Holly Spray, Pine Bough and Noel Ornament Card

  Happy Saturday Crafty Peeps! I'm back again with another Christmas Card that seems quite dimensional, and a little overboard on the top, but it really sparkles and it was super FUN to create!  :)  I'm calling it the; 
Poinsettia, Holly Spray, Pine Bough and Noel Ornament Card

This shimmery card sparkles so much more IRL- (it was tough to capture that shine on camera). I cut out the NOEL word and double layered it then hung it from Holly Spray to make it seem like an ornament. The Mosaic Poinsettia is backed by the Classic Poinsettia in AC glitter black CS. The Holly sprays are also multi-layered and backed with AC glitter black CS for added depth. 
CARD RECIPE:
Stamps: none
Paper: AC Duotone, Heavy Black Glitter CS, The Paper Company Shimmery white CS, Heavy White CS
Paper Size: 5x7
Ink: none
Accessories: Creative Expressions Holly Sprays, Pine Bough, Classic Poinsettia, Mosaic Poinsettia, Sentimental Bauble and Framed Noel Craft dies by Sue Wilson, EK Success Border Punch, Cuttlebug EF, Pearls, Pearl Cording, Fabric Dimensional Paint, White Glitter
Techniques: embossing, layering

These Creative Expressions Festive Collection Dies sets are so awesome. I used the Holly Sprays, Pine Bough, Classic Poinsettia, Mosaic Poinsettia, Sentimental Bauble and Framed Noel.  For more on these fabulous Craft Dies and to see Sue's gorgeous works of art, check out her Blog. http://particraft.blogspot.com/
