Dies R Us - Pretty Little Poinsettias

Today I have a beautiful holiday card in the traditional Christmas colors of Red, Green and White with a touch of Gold to share with you and it's my inspiration sample for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog.  I'm very happy with how this card came together, and only TWO die sets were used.

The dies I have used today are:

Spellbinder Holiday '5x7 Holly Frame' #S6-040

I am SO SORRY to say that this beautiful Spellbinder Holly Frame is out of stock and I'm not sure it will be back in the store again before the holidays. 
Spellbinders - Holiday Collection - Christmas - Shapeabilities Die - 5 x 7 Holly Frame

I love it when you can pair these type of dies together to create a masterpiece such as this.  I've used dimension tape to pop up the red panel as well as in three locations under the scroll.  The little poinsettias hide the dimensional tape squares quite well!  LOL

On the holly scroll I've colored the holly leaves with a Spectrum Noir 'DG3' alcohol marker and placed gold Stickles in the center of each flower for just a TOUCH of sparkle.

Be sure to pop over to the Dies R Us Store to find all your holiday card making dies.  They have over 40 companies represented and don't forget to use the SEARCH block.  Just type in what you're looking for and it will show you all the dies available for that subject from all the companies represented.  I was amazed at how helpful the SEARCH feature of the store was!
