Sandy here today with something new for me. I tried to get a bit artsy with my floral embellishment on this card. But first, I started with a 5 x 7 inch green card stock base, adding a red patterned paper background. To this I added a Musical Staff Mesh Border piece backed with more patterned paper and green card stock. For my cute little Drummer Boy from Mo Manning, I used the center die from the new Madrid Flourishes Rectangle Boutique Stacker Frames, adding more patterned paper (all from Bo Bunny)
Now for my floral embellishment, I started with my Medium Lollipop Fringe Cutie winding it around wooden skewers. Check out this tutorial post from Irina showing you how to do it. Next I die cut some Cattails and Wheat Heads. I doubled the paper on these so they would be thicker. I added a bit of color with my Copic markers. The last step was my flower created with my Poinsettia Strip; I used 2 large, 1 medium and 1 small petal folding the petals down the center score for some dimension.
