Hi Classy Friends!!
Diane here with you today on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog.

Our challenge this week is all about Christmas Blooms.
Using the inspiration photo below.

You can get very creative with this one by
using Poinsettias, Wreaths, Pine Cones, Greens, etc!
Doesn't it sound like fun?
Well, I have to say it was!
I had so much fun putting this card together using some wonderful products
from the Classy Cards 'n Such store!

I decided to make a shaped card and first started with just plain white card stock.
Scoring it and folding it half, then offsetting the die at the top so it
would not cut all the way through, allowing my card to open and shut.

I used the largest of the Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornaments die to achieve this.
Using the same die, I cut out another full size ornament from 
Pearlized Esse White Metallic paper and added it to the front of my card.

To decorate my ornament I cut a Memory Box Plush Poinsettia Corner twice.
One from the red, and one from the green Foil Paper Textured  assortment.
I glued each Poinsettia petal down using Art Institute Clear Adhesive .

To finish I added White Pearls and a shimmery bow.
I also completed the inside of my card with a sentiment from 

I hope you enjoyed my card and I invite you to join in our weekly challenge.

Love your ornament card ... My sweet friend gave me a poinsettia die last week and I used it on a recent card ... When I came to clear up I couldn't find a piece of the die anywhere ... I have searched and searched ... gone through the bin countless times but it's nowhere to be seen ... sigh
