I re-coloured the sentiment in gold and printed on to white card and cut out using circle die. I also cut out an X-Cut bauble die in gold card, trimming off the attached sentiment and layerd together with the image. I then die cut out Spellbinders Poinsettias in Papermania patterened vellum and gold card, Britania rose leaves, Spellbinders poinsettia leaves and Marianne pine branch in gold card.
