It has been so hard to resist starting my Christmas cards too early but I have seen so many beautiful Christmas cards and projects in blog-land recently that I can not resist any longer so I give up, I’m joining in too! :)
I’m kicking off my festive offerings with my first Case Study entry, the lovely card by Niki Estes was perfect for my first attempt. I scored my green card stock in diagonal lines and added red gems at the intersections for some sparkle, I cut my letters on my Craftrobo/Silhouette and stitched around the edge of my front panel leaving a blank space for the lettering. I made the poinsettia cut file from the existing digi I have on this page, I cut all of the petals in red then cut the largest 2 sections again, slightly larger in green. I sponged all of the edges then ‘drew’ some veins on the reverse of the petals and leaves with an embossing stylus and a stamping pad (the soft side of a mouse mat is fine for this) then popped a metallic brad through the holes in the middle to hold it all together.
Here is your cut file – formats included are ai, dxf, GSD, pdf & svg:
