Combining a beautiful scripted sentiment with a beautiful poinsettia always creates a beautiful Christmas card.  

Today I have used Suzanne Cannon's A Way With Words - Noel die cut for the sentiment.  It was die cut using green Green Shimmer Sheetz.  To frame it, Els van de Burgt Studio Stitched Rectangle and Dotted Scallop Rectangle die sets were used.  The Dotted Scallop Rectangle was die cut using Green Shimmer Sheetz.

This is a 6x6" card.  Using the largest Dotted Scallop Square die, a white frame was die cut.  A Tim Holtz Alterations die was used to die cut the fancy corner, on the left of this piece. Red Shimmer Sheetz was attached behind the die cut.  The largest Stitched Square was die cut to go behind the Dotted Scallop Square.  They were attached together with dimensional tape.

At Christmas time I always love to create Susan's Garden Notes Poinsettias.  This is the large poinsettia.  The center of the flower was created using a combination of Viva Paper Pen dots and Prills.  Behind the flower are boughs die cut using Susan's Garden Notes Whitepine Boughs & Pinecone die set.   A few red berries from my stash were also added.  A few snowflakes were die cut using dies from Karen Burniston's Sleigh Gift Card Holder PopUp die set.

Good afternoon Selma,
Oh flower, this is such a beautiful card in every way that i couldn't honestly pick out what makes it so stunning, but i think that your poinsettia wins it by a petal. Thank you for displaying just a masterpiece for us all to be able to try our hand at in our own way,
love and crafty hugs from Scotland
