Simple Poinsettia

Hello my wonderful blogging friends, I made this card quite awhile ago but never knew how I wanted to finish it. I love how simple it is & there’s really no way to embellish it without distracting from the poinsettias … I decided to just let it be a plain & simple Christmas card.

I used the Spellbinders large Poinsettia die to cut & emboss it & added a few little white Dew Drops in the centers.  The red & green flower at the bottom of the picture will be used on another card. It’s made from velvet papers that I cut with a Marianne die & a Nellie Snellen punch.

Thanks for stopping by &  hopefully it won’t be so long until my next post. Time just gets away from me ….. Once again I seem to spend more time shopping & no time USING the wonderful things I buy.




Hugs, Janie

  32. Janie: The all white card is the key to simplicity which is sometimes very elegant. I think I told you once before it reminds me of a new Bride.
