|inside of card|
the idea for this card came when i saw dynamic duos dt member kim's beautiful christmas card. i would have never thought to make a christmas card with these colors, but i really think the combo is actually perfect for christmas... icy yet warm at the same time. anywhoo... i knew i wanted to use my new stampin up! set christmas blessings. i got the set because i love poinsettias (and thanks to some very helpful tips from the gal in the floral dept. of my local grocery store i now know how to keep them alive all through the holiday season!) and the poinsettia image in the set is just gorgeous! i stamped the image using pool party and then added the little pearls that a shade lighter than soft suede. there is a sentiment in the set that i wanted to use for the front of the card, but it didn't fit on my fishtail flag so i used this lovely sentiment from the flourishes set petals and peace. it went perfectly with the sentiment that i used on the inside of the card. after stamping and die cutting the sentiment with a fishtail flag die i trimmed the end, adhered it to the card and added the button and twine embellishment. the card base was cut using the largest die in the spellbinders lacey circle dies set and then dies from the small and large plain circle dies from spellbinders.
