Traditional Christmas Card

There was a new release from Gina K. Designs last week and the Release Challenge is to make a Christmas card using the traditional red and green colours.

I thought the design on this patterned paper looked like poinsettias, so I decided to stamp some poinsettias for a background. I inked up the stamp with Cherry Red ink and then inked up just the outer part with Red Velvet. 

I trimmed a piece of patterned paper, added it to the card front and adhered this to a white card base.  Then I stamped the sentiment, embossed it in clear and added it to a piece of green cardstock. I popped it up with some foam squares and then added some yellow Stickles to the center of the poinsettias.

Well, that's one more Christmas card made. It's hard to believe it's September already and Christmas will be here before we know it.

I used the following supplies:
Gina K. Designs: Merry & Bright, Christmas Joy stamp sets
                            Cherry Red, Red Velvet, Grass Green ink
                            Floral Essentials patterned paper pack
                            White, Grass Green cardstock
Yellow Stickles
clear embossing powder, tape runner, foam squares from my stash


  1. Great job! (My goodness, only a few months and we'll be sending them out. :-) )

  2. So very beautiful with that diagonal design. I live the poinsettias.


Thank you for your comments. I appreciate each one.
