Christmas Poinsettias and More!

I just love this card.  Those gorgeous musical notes contrast so well with the elegant poinsettia, both from the pretty Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper collection.  The sentiment comes from Reason for the Season and the Home for Christmas red Enamel Dots are also from the Holiday Mini Catalog.

This rustic card uses the same stamp set, Reason for the Season.  The leaves are punched out with the Festive Flower Builder Punch and clipped up the sides to create a natural look.  The Note Tag Punch frames the sentiment nicely.  The versatile Woodland Embossing Folder in the background and a bow of natural Linen Thread finish it off!

This final card uses the beautiful Two-Step poinsettia in the same stamp set to create a pretty flower.  The sentiment is stamped on a sheet of White Vellum and punched out with a Circle Punch. A punched out circle from the Merry Moments Designer Series Paper Stack lies behind it.  The background is embossed with the Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder and some curliques of the Gold Metallic Thread add a little shine behind the flower.

I hope you're all having fun preparing for Christmas.  We saw a Christmas play last night that put me in the mood!
