Three for #2

Told you I would be back!
I saw the current cue word over at Casology and have lots of ideas to make cards with, as 3 is such a natural thing to gravitate to in our card making hobby!  I am using 3 NBUS items on this card and offering it up for Darnell's NBUS #2!  In my first ever order from SSS, I ordered this gorgeous Season's Greetings die (exclusive to SSS and entering for the Monday challenge) and decided to die cut in a rich red (Pure Poppy from PTI or Real Red from SU...I have them mixed up by mistake) and also die cut into my brushed silver card front and inlaid.  I am also using a brand new to me SU floral and matching punch set "Flower Shop" that I stamped in Versamark on vellum and used a Ranger brand red embossing powder and heat set.  3 of these for the Casology cue.  The centers in the flowers are rhinestone from SU from last Christmas that I had to have right then...this is the first time I have used them.
So, that's my card for these three challenges...
Thanks for stopping in-Chriss  


  1. This is really sensational, Chriss! When it's enlarged, I can really see the glitter and the wonderful details. Those flowers look like some kind of exquisite Christmas hard candies piped with frosting and that Ranger e/p does a great job (note to self!). The flower centers you've been hoarding are perfect for this card!! Thank you so much for playing again in my NBUS Challenge!! Hugs, Darnell

  2. I love how the red looks when it's inlaid into the silver - beautiful, classic Christmas! So glad you joined us at CASology this week!

  3. Oh my this is so lovely!! What gorgeous bejewelled flowers!
