Poinsettia Christmas Card

I have used a set of Tattered Lace dies to cut the "book" layers in white and red card. On the front I have used the die to cut a page from a Hunkydory liitle book. I curled all the layers around my rolling pin. 

I have made an A4 easel card and matt and layered the top and the bottom with red and then white embossed card. I added the book to the front using red liner tape in the centre and foam pads down the sides and then added the bookmark.  I die cut the sentiment with a Sue Wilson die and attached it to the die cut shapes which I cut with Spellbinders dies before attaching it to my card. I die cut the flourishes with a Cheery Lynn die and the poinsettia with Tattered Lace dies. I completed my card with satin ribbon and tonic nuvo drops. 

I made the box using a scoreboard. I attached red satin ribbon around the outside of the lid and added a bow.  I added the scalloped circles to the box lid, these were cut with Xcut dies from a nesting set. I die cut the sentiment with a Sue Wilson die. I completed the box with a poinsettia and tonic nuvo drops.
