Merry Christmas To You with MORE Poinsettias!


Hello crafty friends and Happy Holidays!

Anyone else get their Christmas cards done super late and mailed just in time?! Me too! LOL

Now that I got all my cards mailed out....all 30 of them!...I can share some of them I sent out. I made 30 cards in total for family and friends. And to keep myself motivated and from getting bored with the same card over and over, I tried to make different variations and styles. 

For the next 3 days till Christmas, I'm going to be sharing with you some of the different styles and variations I created.


I love using and playing around with the Spellbinders Poinsettia dies so much on my last card that I had to use them again on some more simpler cards.


I also added some more foliage die cuts from Tim Holtz. I colored the flowers and leaves with my Copics and then added some Wink of Stella shimmer to them all!

I absolutely LOVE the super pretty gold embossing powder that I got in the My Monthly Hero kit from Hero Arts. I'm going to have to get me some more, because I loved it so much I used it on ALL my Christmas cards and now I'm out. LOL


I used Tim Holtz Ditress Inks on the backgrounds with a decorative stencil that I thought most closely resembled a snowflake. And the pics don't capture the shimmer, but I used some more of that gold Wendy Vecchi Shimmer Spray on the backgrounds too.

The Inside...


After I finished the first card with the Tim Holtz leaf die cuts, I remembered I had some realistic looking leaves stashed away with all my paper flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I'm not sure which version I like better, but after asking my son, he said the second version looked better because the leaves looked more true to nature and the actual Poinsettia plant. 


I can't decide, I like both. lol
