Daring Cardmakers have a fab dare this week.

Jo says-:
A hand cut tag covered with paper from the K&Co Holiday Traditions pad and embellished with lace and ribbon.
The poinsettias are punched using a Woodware punch. They have been embellished with brads and Krylon Glitter spray.
The background stamp is from Rubber Stampede.

Here I have used a piece of blue pearlised/embossed card and cut out a mount using Fiskars Sunflower decorative scissors. I have then done some freehand piercing to create a lacy edge.
Stamped images are from Stampendous and have been embossed in silver.

Thanks for a great dare Jo


  1. well, where's the one that "won't be a pretty sight" then? I'm disappointed Sheila, I thought you were going to try really hard to make a mess and what do I find but two more gorgeous cards. I love that they are so different from each other, just proves how amazing your talent is

  2. They are both lovely cards Sheila. The poinsettias are really good and both cards are very classy.

  3. Very beautiful....Okay, they're Xmas & I don't really wanna look but it is inevitable, its on its way!!

  4. Beautiful christmas cards, I love the tag you made.

  5. Your Christmas card is awesome! I know who ever you send it to will be thrilled.

  6. Thanks for visiting - I am glad we are all the same about hesitating before we cut up card, I had these papers for weeks before I would cut into them! Can you believe I put the background on upside down, only realised when I saw the pic I had posted!yikes!

  7. Beautiful cards Sheila, love your frilly bits!!

  8. Absolutely love the poinsettia card. You can send it to me if you like :-)
