Christmas Flowers


I rarely buy the co-ordinating dies to go with stamps. I have a Silhouette electronic die cutter and so if I need a matching die-cut , I try to trace it digitally and cut it out. I think this worked out well here, as I was also able to make a frame card to match.

The stamps here are by Avery Elle. For the woodgrain, I used an embossing folder, smeared with gold ink.

So clever with the silhouette Marina...don't have one of those x The cutting around the fabulous flowers and then incorporating the frame looks great. As does the texture on the embossing and the pop of gold x

I usually fussy cut, the old fashioned manual way:) but the silhouette sounds like an awesome machine. Nice touch adding a bit of gold to the EF.

Love the contrast between the woodgrain paper and the pretty flowers. Thanks for sharing with us at Winter Wonderland.

I need a lesson from you for tracing! This is wonderful!

Your flowers really stand out against the dark green and that's a clever idea to make the frame around them. I like the gold on the wood too.
