Church Window Christmas Card

This is a 8x8in white card. I have matt and layered the card with red and green card, I have rounded the corners with a punch. I have then layered with embossed white card. I have embossed with a Sue Wilson embossing folder. I  have cut a church window using a  Memory Box die and used red card as the back drop for the  window. I have cut two candles using Marianne dies, I cut the candles in white then cut the flame in yellow and stuck that on top for a realistic look. I have cut two holly flourishes using a Cheery Lynn die. The large poinsettia is cut using a Marianne  die and the smaller poinsettias are cut  using a Tattered Lace die. I have cut the sentiment in red and green  with a Tonic die. I  have stuck them down to create and shadow effect. I have completed the card with gems and pearls.
