Christmas poinsettia...

I made this card in very traditional Christmas colors. There's nothing spectacular about it, but I think it will do for a simple Christmas greeting. The scalloped, wavy sentiment banner is an unbranded stamp and die set. There are quite a few sentiments that came with the die, so I think it will be very useful for all manner of cards.

My poinsettia was made with a Cheery Lynn die that cuts out the individual leaves. I think they're actually holly leaves, but they work great for a poinsettia, too.

The leaves can be cut in three different sizes, although here I've only used two. I glue them onto a small circle of cardstock after shaping them a bit with a shaping tool.

Once that was done, I added a few tiny metal flat-backed "gems" for my flower center and three sequins and my card was nearly finished.

On the inside of my card I stamped a sentiment and also a little sprig of holly. I also added strips of red cardstock to the top and bottom of my sentiment panel to give it some definition.

We had a lovely dinner at my daughter's house on Thanksgiving.  They did a wonderful job of brining and roasting the turkey and cooking all the side dishes. It was delicious!!

If you celebrated Thanksgiving (or not), I hope your day was as nice as ours.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Beautiful - there is nothing about this card that I don't love. Everything from the colors to layout are just perfect.

Beautiful poinsettia. I would never have known it was from holly leaves. They do make pretty petals. I love that wavy banner. It adds lots of interest.
