For the stand tall hycct challenge and for this week's ways-to-use-it challenge, chipboard. I don't keep chipboard in stock, so I used an old file folder carton. Also, this die is 12 inches long (I trimmed it to fit the card.), and I don't have the extended platforms for either my cuttlebug or big shot. I had to reverse with both the cutting and the embossing. Reclaimed container cardboard doesn't retain the embossing. Duh! In order to keep the groomed petals from going flat again, I popped them up with tiny pieces of foam tape.

Whatever you had to do, you've achieved wonderful looking results, Brenda. This is such a gorgeous classic Christmas beauty. I have a 12" Sizzix border die and I always have to make do and mend with it - no extended plates here either!
