Die cut Christmas at Craft-Room

Well here it is - one of the few Christmas Cards I've made, and it's for our latest challenge at Craft-Room. Mervi has chosen the theme of Die cuts or punches and on my card I've used Tim Holtz poinsettias and elegant flourish plus a Martha Stewart border punch.
The main background is a stampin up stamp (borrowed from my mum!) embossed in gold EP and inked with antique linen DI. The left hand border is a Kanban script stamp. The main image is a gorgeous little cherub courtesy of LeBlanche (and Ebay - was a bargain!). I've used barn door Distress ink, and highlighted using the picket fence distress marker (the only one I have !!).

There are so many gorgeous die cuts and punches out there so share your creations and you could win a fab prize from this weeks sponsor Rarebird -

I'm sharing my card here also - 

Thanks so much for stopping by - please visit the rest of the Craft-Room team to see their gorgeous creations, Esther xx
