Makeover Challenge



I realized that it was about time that I started making my Christmas cards as I have lots to make, (I usually start in August)  I have made this card for the Makeover Challenge at Hero Arts and its based on a card I made last Christmas.  There is a photo of it at the end of the post.




It was very difficult to photograph so that you could see the shimmer of the gold embossing, hence the strange angles! The script on the card is a very old Hero Arts stamp called International Christmas Script and the Poinsettia is a new set , I don't have the matching Die yet so had to fussy cut the flower out, I also stamped it twice and layered up the inner petals. 



Here is the original card from last year.  Hope you are having a great week.
