Tartan Christmas Card

I have made an 8x8in white easel. I have covered the top and bottom with patterned paper I had free with a magazine and red plain card. I added satin ribbon along the top and bottom of my card. I have added a strip of green card with satin ribbon on the bottom to act as the stopper for the easel. 

I have die cut the baubles with Spellbinders dies. I embossed the baubles with a Creative Expressions embossing folder. I die cut the poinsettia with Tattered Lace dies. I assembled my baubles and poinsettia and added narrow satin gold ribbon. I embellished my baubles with tiny flat backed pearls and added a pearl embellishment to the centre of my poinsettia. I die cut the ovals with Presscut dies. The white oval with include a personalised sentiment closer to Christmas
