Silent Night

Well I have just 34 minutes to link this up with a challenge so here goes. 
I bought a very detailed cutting file that I liked from the Silhouette store and used my machine to cut it from dark brown vinyl. It was too detailed to cut from paper. I made it a mat using the studio software, and cut that from a snippet of gold embossed card.
The base card was a pre-cut one in dark brown, and I added a layer of cream paper printed with the words and music from Silent Night. I glued the bauble to the matted layer, and added a sentiment cut with the same brown vinyl and Britannia dies. The fir branches are a Marianne die, and the flower, which just finished it off nicely, was a gift some years ago, so I don't know its origin. 

So here is the finished card.
I am hoping to make some more of these this week, but for now I shall link this up to CraftyHazelnut's Christmas Challenge 194; Silent Night.

OMGosh, this is an awesome look, but then to read you did the cutting with vinyl. That is so extremely detailed. I am blown away - as I'm just trying to cut some paper things. This is absolutely beautiful and stunning. It's lovely against that music background. TFS & Happy Sunday.

What a beautiful card, Kate, and I love the music background. It's very unusual and bound to make an impact in the mass of cards everybody receives these days!
