A Lovely Christmas


Digital Delights rocks! I have been thoroughly enjoying the artful images by Louby Loo (alias Wendy). This card was made with her Poinsettia Set. 
Poinsettia Set

I used some paper from my stash...very old CTMH Background and Texture paper (B&T) as they used to call it. the colors are New England Ivy and Sunflower.
I also used some Washi Tape. I have not used this stuff much, and I know there is more that can be done with this. One use I saw on Pinterest was to tape kid's artwork on the wall with it. It doesn't stick too much as to ruin the paint finish on your walls...how cool is that?
Sweet little art space or desk for kids. Love the slim profile for small spaces. Also - look! - colorful washi tape being used to hold up the pictures on the wall!
Anyway, back to the card...
I decided to offset the flower ON the frame instead of IN it...sort of looks like an engagement ring for Mrs. Claus, but I like it.
I used Prismacolor markers and some Prismacolor Pencil as well. The heart was sponged with CTMH cranberry ink. I used Stickles on the heart and the berries. the Gems are from Hobby Lobby.
I used a Darice folder to emboss the card stock, which is from Michael's. I love this embossing folder. I think it has become my favorite out of the oh, so few I own.

Now Here's a Tip...
Notice the layers. I printed the flower several times and cut out smaller and smaller sections and layered them with dimensionals. I sponged the leaves with the cranberry ink, too.


Time is running out on Christmas card sending, so I am going to start making more thank-you cards...people have been so generous with gifts to me this year, for helping them do things they cannot do for themselves...how lovely and thoughtful of them!
