Poinsettia Christmas


Today's share is another card I created yesterday. For this card I stamp the image onto wheat cs from LI using black ink, then embossed with clear ep. The images were colored in to match the PP from K & Company using Copic markers. I cut then out using Nesties. I used Unity's "Bitty Christmas tags" set but any tiny poinsetia would work. I embossed bottom of the card using CB 'Swiss Dots" folder. I stamped wording using Colorbox "warm red" chalk ink. I just love how it adheres to any surface it is one of my favorite inks to use. I think I like it because the pads are so juicy.

Have a great evening or good day if you are getting this in the morning:)

HI Nettie! :)

I love how you always make your cards POP in some way, like you did here with the texture of the embossings.

I am starting to get in the holiday season already too - and it isn't even Thanksgiving yet! I always like to begin the season watching the movie "Elf" with Will Ferrell - have you seen it? I am not a huge Will Ferrell fan, but he is so endearing in this movie (my friends say his character reminds them of me, LOL, not sure that one is true). If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it. I think it is a very sweet movie.

Hope your weekend was relaxing - you deserve some of that!

Such a pretty card! I like how the poinsettias have the sparkle/glaze on them.
