B is also for Boot, Bling and Beautiful Blooms

It's that time of year again . . .
we all need to get our Christmas cards sorted and
what better way to do it than playing along with the
at

The prompt from Day 2 is "B"

My Boot shaped cards are covered with
Bling and have Beautiful Blooms filled with Bling.
These fun shaped cards stand up tall and are quite stable.
I have been "printer challenged" and quite frustrated on the digital stamp front the last couple of weeks, so once Beccy got to the Day 4 prompt and the letter "D", I thought it was time to use some die cuts and get started without any colouring.


I used a cut file from the Silhouette Design Store (details & link below) and cut the elements to make the card with my Cameo.  I used liquid adhesive to secure all the layers.


   

I curled the leaves and petals for each poinsettia flower then added a cluster of sparkling orange rhinestones to the centre of each one.


Each boot needs 25 rhinestones for the lattice section.  I scavenged all the clear rhinestones I could find in my stash and ended up using three different sorts, 4mm square, round 4mm and round 5mm.  They all sparkle beautifully.


These cards are 5 1/2" x 6 1/2" and fit nicely in the envelope for mailing.

  1. Wow, these are gorgeous Tracy! You're really doing a terrific job with your cameo, I'm so impressed with these wonderful cards. Love all the rhinestones you added, they sure add a lot of sparkle to the design. The poinsettias are fabulous too!
