2011 Christmas Card

Yikes – I have some catch-up to do!  It’s been a busy couple of months, and I got out of the habit of updating my blog, but I sure was busy in my craft room!  I have lots to share with you as I catch you up on my holiday creations and some recent cards.  So, stay tuned!

First, I’ll start with our Christmas card for this year.  I chose to go with a simple design, since I had over 100 to make :).  Nothing says Christmas like Poinsettias, and the 5-Petal Flower punch does the trick!  Using my bone folder, I separated the card stock to give the Poinsettia some texture.  You can’t tell from the photo, but the flower is spritzed with some shimmer mist (Shimmer Paint + alcohol).  The Poinsettia is held together by a Mini Brad and the background of the card is embossed with the Northern Flurry embossing folder.

Thanks for stopping by today and stay tuned for my upcoming posts where I will show you my handmade Christmas gifts!
