Finally I had a chance to play with one of these lovely laser cut and stitching card fronts.  These are new to Blue Edge Crafts and there are so many designs to choose from.

So I started with a blank white pre-scored card.  Then a layer of SU Poppy Parade which I have rounded the corners to match the laser cut card front.  I added a strip of green bazzill card to the top of the card front and some gold paper behind the bauble.  I used my fine black pen to create the faux stitching....thanks so much Kaye for this idea.  'Noel' is a rub-on.  I ran the card front through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder.  I then added a 3D paper tole that I have cut out and layered up from the Mini 3D Paper Tole Christmas Booklet.  Oh, and I added some bling.

I really love the green on this card.
I started again with a white pre-scored card.  Then I added this wonderful green stripy paper that came with the paper tole in the 3D Paper Tole Christmas Booklet.  Then I added the lovely christmas bauble 3D paper tole.  Finished the card by adding this fun silver border sticker.

I would like to enter into the following challenges:
