Christmas Cards 2018-mar-01

Welcome back to my blog,

This is my second post of the day, to see my a2z March Challenge inspiration post, click here.

It's been a couple weeks since I last worked on my Christmas card stash, I thought I shouldn't wait any longer.  Plus the inspiration photo the Merry Monday Christmas challenge #279 is so pretty, it is easy to get inspired.

I used the poinsettia cling stamp from Impression Obsession and a Tim Holtz
Florish embossing folder for my card.  The sentiment is from Penny Black.

After I embossed my white card panel I gently apply Peeled Paint over the raised area.  The sentiment is stamped in Peeled Paint as well.  The poinsettia is stamped in black and inked with Ripe Persimmon and Barn Door, and hand cut.  For the flower center I added some Platinum Stickles.

I must say I am quite happy how these turned out and it is not overly complicated.  As you can see, I made several of them!!

And I am also linking up to a new found challenge blog:

Thanks for visiting.  I wish you a sweet day.

Your inking adds such a lovely texture to your poinsettia card. It grabbed my attention in the MM gallery.
