Natale a Febbraio

Ultimamente non riesco a postare quasi nulla... ma sto cercando di fare almeno una card di Natale al mese, per non trovarmi di nuovo impreparata alla fine dell'anno!!! Adoro le card di Natale, scaldano il cuore, invitano alla quiete...... E intanto utilizzo un bel po' di piccoli scraps avanzati. :D
 
Per questa card ho usato: una EF brand Crafter Companion's; un punch scallop e un avanzo di carta patterned Wiler; un avanzo rettangolare di cartoncino che tempo addietro avevo colorato con i DI ed embossato con una EF brand Crafty Essential; una fustella Apple Blossom e avanzi di carta metallizzata per la poinsettia; una fustella Heartfelt Creations per il "fiocco di neve" bianco che è dietro la poinsettia. Nelle foto la poinsettia non sembra metallizzata, ma nella realtà luccica tantissimo.
 
Per l'insegna bianca in alto ho usato un'altra fustella brand Apple Blossom: ho tagliato l'insegna in uno scrap di cartoncino bianco, e poi nuovamente nella carta rossa metallizzata; poi ho usato l'ovale interno con una fustella Sizzix per ritagliare la scritta "Natale"... :D Il negativo l'ho usato qui, mentre la scritta l'ho messa da parte per futuri usi... Due fustellate al prezzo di una! LOL

Con questo progetto vorrei partecipare ai seguenti challenges:

Brilliant idea to get ahead with Christmas. The year passes to quickly. Gorgeous card Alice. Love the little white flower in the middle of the poinsettia. It really makes it pop.

Ciao Alice,

Fiori di Natale - Le stelle di Natale dicono sempre Natale per me, mi piace averle a casa, anche se non potrò mai tenerle vive, penso di dar loro troppa acqua.

Il taglio muore che hai fatto apparire molto bello sullo sfondo verde in rilievo e fare un ottimo inizio per le tue carte per il prossimo Natale. Non ho ancora fatto nessuno.

Hello, Alice! Your card is gorgeous! Good for you for getting another one made! I am way behind - I set my goal for two each month so I guess I had better get busy! I love the beautiful poinsettia and the snowflake and scalloped circle layers. The embossing is beautiful - it's one of my favourite techniques! I like the hanging sign as well - everything works together so well and I love this colour combo too!

The past weeks I’ve had little crafting and blogging time, so today I’m playing catching up.
I think red with this light bluish color is a lovely color combo for Christmas, and the shine of the red is beautiful. Love the embossed background as well.
