I wanted to share with you one of my Christmas cards for this year that I really like.
I have always wanted a fairly large poinsettia stamp, and in August of this year I purchased a used set of Flourishes stamps called Poinsettia and Pine from Julie Kerber of Out to Impress. The set includes a wonderful poinsettia stamp that I used for the card below.
The strip of colored cardstock under the poinsettia is actually glitter paper. I think you can see some of the sparkle in this photo.
I used my Swiss Dots embossing folder for the white mat.
The inside is simple with just a strip of the glitter cardstock at the bottom to finish it off. This card was so quick to pull together, but I love it. I'm going to try it in some more colors, too. I'm thinking about some hot pink. What do you think?
My sister has also been busy making her Christmas cards, and here's one of them.
In fact, I'm thinking that a die-cut exchange with a group of papercrafters would be super fun! Maybe with Easter cards in mind?? If you're interested, let me know. You'll find my email link on the right side of the page under "Contact."
Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
