Flocked Season's Greetings

 Hi there and thanks for stopping by my blog today! My April header is of my Star Magnolia tree. Although still small and fenced-off, so that the deer don't get to it - it is covered in these beautiful blooms. Can't wait till it reaches a height where it will be safe from those rats with antlers! 

Today I have a card for the Design Team of Christmas Craft Creations and this month the challenge is "No Stamping"!  So come on ladies - get out those dies and stencils and join in the fun. It is CCC's one year birthday this month, so there are a few prizes up for grabs!! I hope you will join in the fun?

I'm afraid I didn't have my camera up in the stamping room when I made my card, as it was raining torrentially and I didn't want to go over to get it!! So this will be a photoless post!

I began by die cutting the Tutti Designs Holly Panel from green cardstock layered with double stick adhesive. The cardstock side was taped down to the red cardstock, around the edges and under some of the leaves to keep it flat. I removed the protective backing from the die cut and applied Grass Green Flocking.

In hindsight, I should have attached the berries (red rhinestones) before putting down the flocking as the self-adhesive on some of the rhinestones was not terribly sticky!!

I die cut the Impression Obsession Christmas Stitched Words from the same green cardstock and put double sided tape behind, so that the Cherry Sparkle Flocking would adhere to the letters. These were then attached to the panel with mounting tape. The rhinestones were added now, but as I said it would have been easier had I done that before the flocking!

The front panel was attached to a white card base and that finished off my card for today! Please join in the fun. It's our birthday month, so several prizes are going to be up for grabs!
