Poinsettia And Pines

Hello everyone!! Here's another Christmas card that I  made recently. While making these cards, I realized that I love to make my own pattern papers using various stamps. You can see all my Christmas cards and projects by clicking on the tab above.

Here's my card:


I stamped the poinsettias (big and small) from Joanna Sheen's Make a Wish stamp set and the pine branches from the Inkadinkado Branches stamp set. I used my gold gel pen to add a few dots to fill in spaces. I used the Hero Arts Royal Red and Forever Green inks for stamping them. I really love this color combination on the ivory card stock. Then I cut it into two pieces - in a slanting line. I used two thin strips of card stock which I embossed with gold embossing powder, as a border. The sentiment is from Unity Stamps' Unto us stamp set. I embossed it with gold embossing powder. The poinsettia is handmade (similar to the one in my previous post). I used my flower punch to cut the layers. I used tiny green rhinestones for more interest.

This is one of the cards for Caring Hearts Card Drive.

Thanks for stopping by. Please let me know your thoughts and comments.

  7. Both your cards are just lovely. Your background stamping is fabulous, and then cutting the background to create that beautiful red sash with the greeting done in gold is just perfect. Especially with the gold accents. Great take on the challenge, thanks so much for participating this week at the Mod Squad Challenge
