Merry Christmas everybody, happy holidays and seasons cheer!! Well not quite since it's been in the 80's the last couple days here which in my neck of the woods isn't anywhere close to winter. But I must say, there is no time like the present to get an early jump on our Christmas card making, right? This Heartfelt Creations release Sparkling Poinsettia, is based in the time honored traditional Christmas colors of red and green, my favorite I might add. This release also has a pair of poinsettia dies and matching stamps that are absolutely stunning! The ruffled edge of the petal dies are so unique and the veins in the stamps make them like no other out there on the market today. The large Poinsettia die also has three holly leaves to accent your shaped flowers. My two cards today are complete opposites of each other, so as to show you that you can adapt this collection to any style or preference. My first card is a 6" X 6" and sort of "rustic vintage", if there is such a thing :-) using traditional colors with a touch of natural. I am also using one of the beautifully scripted sentiment pieces from the paper collection for the inside of my card.
My second card is a 5" X 7" piece made entirely of white and silver. The poinsettias on this card are made from Vellum which I think are so elegant looking.
The complete detailed instructions for both my cards can be found on the Heartfelt Creations Blog, along with tons of Christmas inspiration flowing from my teammates, so be sure to go and check it out!
Thanks for joining me today and come back soon.
P.S. The weekly Wednesday post on the 22nd., we will be showcasing an addition to our super popular March "Peacock Paisley" release consisting of dies to cut the feather and Peacock stamps so you won't want to miss it!
