Not too early for Christmas

Do you start your Christmas cards early????
 I got to play with a new kit of toppers from Flower Soft so I at least have one card created.  What is a topper? It is a set of printed, pre-colored pieces that can then be used on a project. The really cool things about these toppers is that they are cut in strategic places so that all you do is use your fingers to lift the leaves and petals here and there for a dramatic look.
I added some of the amazing gold Flower Soft to the middles of each of my flowers. 

The NOEL sticker is a little sneak peek of something else new coming soon.  I added little rhinestones to it.
Here is a hint too: I placed a little bead of Glossy Accents under each leaf and petal that is lifted up to help give it some stability.
Check out the kit that I used for my card HERE.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
