Poinsettia Christmas Card

Have you been looking for an "easy" idea for your Holiday cards?  Here is a simple Christmas card made with the help of the Close To My Heart Artiste cartridge and some "Pinspiration".  On Pinterest, there have been quite a few cards that use shades of tan and just a pop of color.  The card starts with a Colonial White Card Base and a frame made using the "Frosted" Background and Texture Paper and Cashmere Cardstock.    The red strip is Red Shimmer Trim and it adds just the right amount of "bling".  It is adhesive backed so you just stick it down wherever you need it.  The Poinsettia flowers are on the Artiste cartridge - page 80 of the booklet.  There are three sizes layered together - I cut them at 1 1/4", 1 1/2" and 1 3/4".  Then I sponged the edges using Ruby Ink.  I layered them together and used a  gold Bedazzler stud for the flower center.  The flourish is in the Artiste booklet on page 43 Accent 2 (shift) cut at 2".    The Holly Leaves are on the Art Philosophy Cartridge  Booklet on page 46.  Cut Leaf3 (shift) at 3/4" and 1".  The sentiment is from S1310 Scandinavian Wishes, the October Stamp of the Month, stamped in New England Ivy Ink. 

Hope this inspires you to start working on your Holiday cards!

Pin It!
