Merry Christmas and Happy New Year- Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda

A 8x8in easel card. The top of the card is partly embossed using a holly folder by Embossalicious and partly matt and layered with red card and white card. The wreath is made from a Sizzix die. I have cut out the matching die a few times to build up the wreath. The poinsettia are made using a Tattered Lace die. The card is embellished with green satin ribbon with the sentiment Nadolig Llawen (Merry Christmas in Welsh), this is one of the few things I have found over the years specifically for Welsh crafting. The card is also also embellished with flat backed pearls. the base of the card is matt and layered with red card and the personalised sentiment is cut out using Tonic dies. I have layered this with foam pads for depth to act as  the stopper.
