Blue Noel

     This sample was made using the new Sam's Circles die set from John Next door released last Sunday. It has several options for the centre piece, I chose the townscape for this card.
      Using white card I die cut the star panel with the townscape in the centre, then I cut the NOEL in the space under the town. I also cut a flying Father Christmas in white card to add to the sky.
      I mounted the die cut panel on to some blue mirri card, I thought this looked like a night sky but with added bling. Once the main panel was mounted I turned my Father Christmas over and stuck him down so he flies up from the town.
      This panel was then mounted on foam tape over a white card blank, giving a little bit of depth, it could be posted but with the flowers it will probably end up being hand delivered.
      The flowers were made using white card and the solid Poinsettia from 2018 and a stamen die in pearl silver paper for the centres. I like to shape my flowers just a little, I think it makes them look a little more real.
      I have cut Lesley's Twigs in silver mirri card and a pine branch in pearl blue card, the foliage extends the floral decoration with too much fussiness and as John says the twigs allow you to get a base to work on for your arrangement.
      Everything is stuck together with 3D PVA as it's nice and strong, I know Craft Artist glue is very good but I am a loyal supporter of this super strong PVA from Stix2 as it's never failed me yet.
