This card put me in a happy mood. I love to design cards like this. I used one of the Marianne Design embossing folders for my background. A piece of light blue card stock was attached to the back of the card behind the die cut openings. The flowers were created with the Poppy Stamps "Blooming Poinsettia" die. I used Glue N Seal adhesive to brush a little glue on the petals of the flowers and sprinkled on Rangers Clear Rock Candy "Distress Stickles Dry Glitter. In the center of the flowers I added a small piece of tulle and some pearl stamens from my stash.
Behind the flowers I added the die cut Holly Branch from Marianne Design. Clear Rock Candy glitter was also added to these leaves. In the upper corners I added the Memory Box "Snowflake Corner". A Kaiser Craft white pearl was added to each corner. Some small white pearls were added in the die cut openings in the embossed background.
I hope with all the Christmas cards I have been posting that I have given you some inspiration for your Christmas cards. I love Christmas time and creating a variety of cards for my friends and family.
I would love to have you leave a comment and let me know if you are more interested in very quick and easy cards, or do you plan to create Christmas cards with more detail such as this one. I always look forward to your comments.
