Book Christmas Card

I have made this card using a Tattered Lace die set.

I have cut 5 layers alternating red and white. With the smallest die I have cut the page from a Little Hunkydory book to fit the one side of smallest layer. I added red and gold satin ribbon down the centre of my card and attached a bow at the top. I die cut the sentiment with a Sue Wilson die and added it to the shapes cut with Spellbinders dies. I added this to my book. I die cut the poinsettia with Tattered Lace dies, after assembling them I completed them with flat backed pearls. I attached these to my card with the holly flourishes cut with a Cheery Lynn die. I die cut the stand numerous times in red and white card to make it sturdy.
