I am still making Christmas cards, as I will be right up until Christmas Eve, most likely!I went with a non-traditional color scheme, with pinks and burgundies. I really wanted to color the poinsettias pink! I also love using paper in ways other than intended. I used Cascading Fuchsia and was pleased to find the "believe" sentiment in that set, in the color I needed!
I stamped the candle image from the Sparkling Poinsettia Candle Cling Stamp Set onto white paper with black ink. I colored the image with Copic markers. I then added some enamel dots to the center of each flower. (The dots sparkle in person, but the camera had a hard time picking it up.)
After the image was colored, I cut it out with the largest rectangle die in the Cut Mat Create 2A set. I double-matted the image and used foam tape to pop the image off the card front.
The card is 7" x 5" made from black cardstock. I added two prints from the Cascading Fuchsia paper collection. I created a black border with the wrought iron die template from the Border Essentials set.
I use the oval label from the Luggage and Tags die set to cut out the sentiment. I added the sentiment with foam adhesive and then glued an enamel dot to the label. The dots I used are from C.C. Designs.
I added some paper and a stamped sentiment to the inside of the card.
