Merry Christmas To You and Yours


Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. It's a brand new month and this month's challenge hostess is ME!

Christmas Flowers/Foliage - One of the ways people decorate for Christmas is with flowers and/or foliage … the most popular being Poinsettias; Holly; Ivy and Mistletoe. For our challenge this week create a card using something flower or foliage related. 

I purchased this Colorado Craft Company's Slimline Poinsettias stamp set early in the year and put it away to use for Christmas ... so this challenge seemed to be the best opportunity to pull it out to create my card this week. I stamped each of the poinsettia images, cut them out and colored using Copic markers so I could add them to my card using foam tape.

For the white panel I splattered some gold paint from my Gansai Tambi Starry Colors paint set. 

The sentiments I stamped on the lower section of the card are both also from the stamp set.

I added a couple of pine sprigs to the flowers using The Greetery's Pine Wisp die set.

For the inside of the card I stamped another of the poinsettia images to the right side of my white panel, stamping directly to the panel.

I added a sentiment from Couture Creation's Every Day Be Christmas Collection.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
