A Christmas Lantern

Good evening friends,

These past few days have been so hectic!  It is my busiest time at work and will continue like that until after the first of the year.  My card for you today uses a pretty digi by Fred, She Said

The Christmas Poinsettia Lantern was printed and cut using a Spellbinders Gold Labels Four #3 die.  Crystal Effects was added to the flame and the flowers were accented with a clear Spica pen - neither show up in the photos  :-( 

The focal image was mounted to a piece of Soft Sky, which was also cut from a Gold Labels Four die.  Everything was popped up onto a piece of Gilded Christmas paper by Miki.  You can see the collection at Studio Girls Scrapbookgraphics.

Two circles were cut using the small and large classic circles dies and the greeting was stamped in StazOn Black.  A triple loop bow was made from 1/2" Soft Sky seam binding with a cream flat back pearl in the center.

Here is a look at the inside.  I used a sentiment from the Christmas Blessing set by Our Daily Bread Designs.  A poinsettia flower was adhered to the corner

I don't know about you, but there were so many Christmas cards I wanted to make this year. Unfortunately, I didn't start early enough.  I plan to finish the projects I already started and put them aside for next year.

Last night I noticed Cheops' eye infection has come back so we are giving him drops again twice a day for seven days.  I'm praying this time it will clear up for good.

Blessings ...
