Dies and Punches

Happy Thursday everyone, we have a new challenge for you starting today over on the Cute Card Thursday Challenge Blog.  This week our theme is 'Dies and Punches' and our prize sponsor is Rick St Dennis.  If you're looking for digi images that are a little out of the 'ordinary'  then check out Rick's images.

I'm playing catch up with my Christmas card making as I still need to get quite a few made during the next few weeks, so I decided to use one of Rick's Christmas images to make my DT card this week.

I created a background layer using a Sheena Douglas embossing folder and white cardstock.  After embossing I rubbed over some Pewter Treasure Gold paste to highlight the raised areas.  I then attached this over a slightly larger layer of red card before attaching to the base card.

After printing the digi image I coloured it using my ProMarker pens and fussy cut out.  I then added Glossy Accents on the cherry, holly leaves and berries and a touch of Stardust Stickles on the cream and icing on top of the cookies.

The sentiment was created using a die - which was a magazine freebie - and more of the red cardstock.

The pine bough was cut out using a Marianne's die and the Poinsettias were punched out using Nellie's Choice punch and emboss sets in two sizes.  I used a gold Waco Pearlmaker Pen to add centres to the Poinsettias to finish them off.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing today's project, do hop over to the CCT Blog to check out the other DT designs this week. 

Thanks for visiting today.
