My 'sweet' Christmas card. Fruit slices are my all time favorite sweet treat that I usually don't eat except around Christmas time. They were the inspiration for my card here. I took raspberry tissue paper cut in circles, folded them in half and then 'snowed' them up on the edges and arranged them here like a fir tree. Then I added pearl gems, a silver star die and pink brad to finish out my tree. I placed it all on a background of embossed ornaments from Sizzix.
This card was a lot of fun to create. I've had this Cosmo Cricket paper forever and it went perfect with the digital robot stamp I found. If you look carefully, the border on the bottom resembles a robot face, unintentionally but makes a nice added feature I think. The orange border is actually the flip side of the DP. I used the layout at Priscilla Styles again.

Something different tonight for Fussy &Fancy Friday Challenge, Anything But a Card. I have had these fabric flowers from an old apron and finally decided to recycle them into a Christmas ornament. I used cardboard cut into a 6 inch diameter circle, covered both sides with gold vellum paper and green ribbon along the edges. I made a hole in the top of the circle and threaded green ribbon through for a ribbon hanger. Then, I adhered the Santa clipart, courteous of The Graphics Fairy, that I printed on photo paper to make it nice a bright. Next, I sprayed some Pearl Glimmer Mist on the flowers to give them a bit of shimmer and then glued them along the outer rim of the circle to form a wreath, added the ribbon, green button and added red gems to the buttons in the middle of each flower.
Stamps: Clipart Santa pic from The Graphics Fairy.
Paper: Gold Vellum.
Ink: Colored ink from printer for photo; Pearl Glimmer Mist.
Extras: Fabric flowers, green ribbon, candy cane ribbon, green button, poinsettia gem, red gems.
