May You Be Blessed

This card was made for Joan's Gardens Thursday Challenge #14.  Here is the challenge for this week:  Make a card or project this week and use the following: 
  • Colors - Red, Brown and Green
  • Embellishment - Pearls and trim - preferably lace
  • BONUS:  If you use a Heartfelt Creation Stamp, your name will be entered twice. If you also use a Heartfelt Creation Die, your name will be entered 3 times.  

 The poinsettia on my card was created using the Heartfelt Creations "Poinsettia Petals" stamp set and the matching dies.  The petals were stamped with red Brilliance ink and the green leaves stamped with always artichoke ink. These stamps are so much fun to work with because it is a breeze to cut them out using the matching dies.   The petals were all layered onto glue dots to create the dimension.  Gold beads were glued to the center.

The background paper is from the Kaiser Craft "Tis The Season Collection" 6" Paper Pad.  It was layered onto red card stock.  A piece of Webster's Pages "Designer Trim" was added along the side with ScorTape.  I don't like to double trim under the designer paper because it makes it "lumpy".  I cut the trim to the side needed and placed ScorTape on the back to attach it. 

The greeting is from the JustRite "Christmas Nested Frames & Occasions" stamp set.  It was stamped with green ink and the border was colored in with Copic markers.  I used scissors to trim around the design. 

I'll be watching for your cards over at Joan's Gardens.
