Simple Christmas card...

I made this Christmas card in a really short amount of time. I used a Lifestyle Crafts large fancy circle die and cut an arc on the bottom of a rectangle of pretty holiday-patterned paper. Then I made a poinsettia using an unbranded die set with each petal and leaf inked on the outer edges. I also cut the word "Joy" with a Tim Holtz/Sizzix word die.

I love the dimension I can get when using this poinsettia die set.  The gold dots in the center were made with Nuvo Drops.

To finish off the front of my card, I adhered three red sequins. Those sequins came to me from my mother's craft stash when she passed away in 1992. I'm still using them nearly 30 years later!!

I stamped a sentiment on the inside of my card and added a matted strip of DSP across the bottom.  Like I said, it didn't take me long at all to make this card, and I really like how it turned out. I hope you do, too.

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

Beautiful. You make the prettiest poinsettias. Your circle die reminds me of a Christmas tree skirt with a beautiful poinsettia laying on it.

I do too! :) I love it! It's a really beautiful card. With the dimension of the poinsettia, do you hand deliver it?

Very pretty - and the doily is just beautiful. Love how you used the sequins from your mothers stash, I have a similar box with my mothers stuff - and I still go digging in it from time to time. Great job.
