Be Merry Christmas

 Hello Everyone.

By now most of you will have seen the new Couture Creations BE MERRY ranges in your favourite scrapbooking and cardmaking store.  If they don't stock it make sure you ask them to get it in for you as it is a gorgeous range.

So today I have for you a card that I made using some of the gorgeous glitter papers released by Couture Creations along with some of the new dies from the BE MERRYrange. I love being a little brave straying away from the traditional colours for Christmas.

I have kind of started making my card in a backward kind of way.  The size of my card was dictated by the three die cuts using the Falling Bauble die using the Snow White Ultimate Craft cardstock.  I then turned them into individual little windows by cutting a small frame around each die cut.

I then backed each of the Falling Bauble windows with the fuschia glitter cardstock then put 3D foam tape on the back of each of the windows. Mount each window next to the other with a small gap in between on to some of the Snow White Ultimate Crafts Cardstock.  I then added some white ribbon across the middle tucking the edges under the windows. Adhere the white cardstock with the windows attached to a slightly larger piece of the fuschia glitter cardstock. I added some Snow White cardstock to the back to turn it into a card.

Next I die cut two of the Merry Christmas sentiment from the Merry Christmas Set one in Snow White and one in Onyx Ultimate Crafts cardstock, 
and four sets of the Holly Berry Sprig set in Snow White
Mount the black and white Merry Christmas die cut on top of one another slightly offset.

 I partially deconstructed one of a Cottage Pollen flower.  I sprayed some adhesive around the edges and then coloured it with some of the Anna Griffin Glitter in a matching pink.  I then glued the centre of the flower back on to the base.

To finish the card I put some glue dots to the back of the flower and attached all the white sprigs.  Adhere this to the left hand side of the card front and place the Merry Christmas sentiment to the right of the flower and then add some 2mm Onyx gemstones to finish.
