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. 
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

Oh my goodness America, this is stunning! I love all the dimension on your card. I was lucky enough to see Sue Wilson demonstrating her dies yesterday at Ally Pally and they are really gorgeous, so I know your card will look even better in real life! Hugs Fern x
