The gold card on the right was cut from gold mirri and plain white cardstock (the front of the card is mirri, the back, white) The white card was scored across the scallops and adhered to the mirri card to make the base card. I added a frame with oval aperture cut from red mirri and Papermania paper. Red satin ribbon was adhered to the bottom of the frame before it was fixed over a contrasting piece of patterned paper adhered to the front of the card, with foam tape. The top of the aperture was decorated with punched poinsettas, white 'helibores' created from small Papermania punches, mini 'helibores' created in the same way, and holly & ivy leaves (punched again with Woodware/Dovecraft punches). Yellow pearls were added to the centres of all the flowers and holly berries (pearls coloured red with a permenant marker) were adhered below the helibores.
Gold card base- Just Because Cards (there is an almost identical one on A Child's Year)
Oval aperture frame/circular aperture frame- Ashlyn's Alphabet
Before I sign off, could I just make an appeal to any ladies coming to my next Swarm on October 6th? If anyone has the Batman cartridge could they please bring it with them as one of the ladies would like to borrow it to make a Batman card for a little boy who wants to be Batman when he grows up!
