Christmas Wishes

Hi everyone- Eileen here. Hope your holidays are going well.

Every year I make a framed piece of art for our special friends and family. This is my wish for you too, dear Sizzix friends...

I used my Leaves die to make the poinsettia flower and leaves.

I die cut the flower petals from red cardstock and leaves from green.  After die cutting I inked one side of each petal to add shading and interest. Zots were used to adhere the layers together.

I added an element from the Place Card and Flowers die for the flower center and printed a quote from Charles Dickens. I cut a double mat and framed it.

I curled the leaves to give additional dimension.

Hope your holidays are bright and spent with those you love...
