LOC Christmas Poinsettia

What fun I am having creating Christmas cards - using Layers of Color art stamps and Spellbinders Dies - a perfect combination!

The paper is from My Minds Eye, Lost and Found series

and the gorgeous Layered Poinsettia is a Spellbinders Die, designed by the ever talented Nina Brackett.

The sentiment is from the Layers of Color Glad Tidings art stamp set and has been cut out using the Grommet Tags Die from Spellbinders (designed by Nina Brackett)! All Dies have been cut with the Grand Calibur

The Border is from the fabulous Ironwork Accents Die, another Nina Brackett Die!

I love the nostalgic feel of this card, it is probably one of my favourites so far!

This card is for the following challenges:
Card Makin' Mamas - cards only - die cuts
Crafty Ann's - floral frenzy
