Poinsettia Christmas Card for GDP013

posted in: Cards, Christmas | 6

I have to confess that although I bought the Festive Flower Builder Punch when the 2015 Holiday Catalogue was first released, this is the first time I’ve used it.  I have no idea why but I’m so glad that I finally got around to it.  I absolutely love it!  I had so much fun making this Poinsettia Christmas card and the results are stunning. 🙂

The Crumb Cake card base is 5″ x 5″ and I’ve then layered Very Vanilla on top of Old Olive.  These quintessential Christmas colours look great together and just happen to be the colours for this week’s Global Design Project colour challenge.  Woo Hoo!!!  The DT really excelled this week with some awesome projects.  Click on the image below to check them out.  And why not have a go yourself?

Poinsettia_Christmas_Card-1 Since the poinsettia is a traditional symbol of Christmas and the Reason for the Season Stamp Set also has a very traditional “feel” to it, my idea was to stay true to the style.  So I kept the glimmer and bling to a minimum, http://www.mindanews.com/buy-celexa/ with just a teeny yellow glimmer centre for the flower and a pearl to finish it off. Note:  The Reason for the Season Stamp Set and Festive Flower Builder Punch are available as a bundle in the 2015 Holiday Catalogue, saving 15%.  Brilliant! I just adore the font used in this greeting, which was stamped in Old Olive and clear embossed. Poinsettia_Christmas_Card-3 A strip of Home for Christmas DSP along the bottom adds a bit of nostalgia, and the Burlap Ribbon and Linen Thread frame the card and gives that gorgeous bloom a place to rest.       Poinsettia_Christmas_Card-2 I finished off the inside with a greeting from the fabulously versatile stamp set called … wait for it …. Versatile Christmas!  I absolutely LOVE this stamp set.  It’s been my “go to” set for Christmas cards this year.  Because there is quite a bit of dimension going on with this card, I pulled out my Envelope Punch Board and made an envelope with a custom liner too.  Easy peasy! Poinsettia_Christmas_Card-4 I hope you like my beautiful Poinsettia Christmas card as much as I do.  Thanks for stopping by today. XOXO Gail         Blog_End_Text

    SUPER gorgeous card Gail. I was going to comment that I loved the sheet music on the card and then you went and dressed up the inside and made a liner out of it. LOVE it! Thanks so much for joining the Global Design Project this week!
