Floral Christmas Card

This card was made with left over scraps from yesterday's creation. As the focal point of the card, I used the die cut piece I put aside from cutting out the largest oval from the Nestabilities. From the chickadee tag (Carol Wilson Fine Arts Stationary) there was the outer rim left, so I used the second largest Nestie oval die to cut another frame. This gave me a leftover piece of the birds for another card. I cut out three ovals from one tag!

I mounted the floral cut out to the white cut out. Next I glued small fabric flowers to the left side of the oval. I fixed the centers of the flowers with red pearls from Kaiser Crafts. I also added small red pearls to the top and bottom of the white oval. I punched out a small tag and affixed silver peel off sticker "Merry Christmas" to it.

Using another piece of the green glittery swirl vellum, I wrapped red ribbon around it to resemble a package. I attached the vellum to a white bazzill notecard with red eyelets using the Crop-a-dile.

Lastly, I attached my assembled floral oval to the card.
