Christmas in July Day 4

poinsettia card

Today’s card is a card that I made last year at a retreat that another demonstrator had here in the Central Texas area.  Lindsey Blackhurst (Stamp with Linz) came up with some of the cutest projects, and I loved this card!  The red in this card is Riding Hood Red, and the green is Kiwi Kiss, so you would have to tweak this card a little bit if you wanted to re-create it.  However, I thought it was a wonderful sample to show all of you!  It would look very similar in Old Olive and Real Red.The stamps used in this card are Spotlight on Christmas (page 30 IB&C) and Canvas Background Stamp (retired).  The verse is from a past hostess set, but any Christmas greeting can be substituted.    The greatest part of this card (in my opinion) is that the poinsettia flowers are punched with the 5 Petal Flower Punch (page 187 IB&C).  This makes your work so much faster and easier!  Notice the Chocolate Chip sponging along the edges and the Dimensionals popping up the flowers.  These small details add some much to a card. 

Have a great day and I’ll have another fun idea for you tomorrow!
