Today we are showcasing lots of wonderful Christmas/Winter dies from the huge selection that Cheery Lynn Designs offers.  We are really just scratching the surface, so be sure to head on over and look around at all the fabulous options.

My card today features the wonderful Merry Christmas Pine and Partridge Sentiment and the wonderful Poinsettia Strip die.

I cut my sentiment twice in a green Distress Ink Paper I created and then twice in red cardstock.  I backed all the cardstock with Stick It Adhesive before I cut it so it would be easy to adhere.  I selected the areas I wanted to show in red and carefully cut away the rest before adhering the layers.  By adding two layers of red, it gives the sentiment more depth.

If you are making lots of cards assembly line fashion, this sentiment looks lovely in one color too which will speed up production.

I created a piece of mottled Distress Ink Paper for my poinsettias because this pretty paper gives a bit more depth and interest to the flowers.  I cut the flowers and shaped the petals before assembling.  I cut two layers in green for the leaves at the bottom.  The centers are created with White Double Head Stamens.

My bow was created on my Bow-it-All V3.0 Tool using two of the ribbons from the Christmas themed October Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The center of the bow is adorned with a pretty Silver Glitter Stardust Rhinestone.
