Red Meri Kirihimete

Mere Kirihimete is Merry Christmas in Maori.  I used traditional maori colours of red white & black, and used some of the drop-out pieces to embellish the corners as they reminded me of maori koru motifs (emerging fern fronds).

The diecut tree is set on metallic silver.

Die: magazine freebie
