Not more Christmas!

Nearly at the end of Elgin demo samples with only three more cards to show you then I shall move on to Inverness samples, in between that I will throwing in a Sugar Bowl card and maybe the felt item I have been working on.  Prototype has been made but as with everything first time around I want to tweak it a wee bit before sharing.
On to today's card;

For this card I have used;
Spellbinder Shapeabilities Lace Doily motifs, Fancy tags and Ironwork accents, plus Nestabilities classic round circles.
Paper is American craft black textured card and MME Loss and Found Union Square.
Stamp by PI Paula Pascual Large Christmas.
Pearls by Zva Creative.
Distress stain Vintage photo and satin ribbon from stash.

This card was inspired by the wonderful Sue over on Particraft, with her introduction to the new Spellbinder dies on TV earlier in the year.
The star shape is make with two square Lace Doily motifs folded across and down plus diagonally on both sides.  Then both dies are attached together.
The corners are made by taking the smaller square die and cutting into quarters.
I have then layered tags and the sentiment in the middle finishing with ink and pearls.
I will be honest it is a wee bit fiddly so patience is a must and to post it will of course require a box.
It is an 8" card so it's a whopper!
More tomorrow.

Oh my goodness this is stunning. I love the effect with the doilys and the colours are amazing. Love the big bow as well.
