Today I used one of the stamps in Krista Schneider's new release for this quick and easy Christmas card.
The name of this stamp set is 'Poinsettia'. This stamp set also has a matching die set.
Use a piece of the Cafe au Lait Soft Finish card stock cut 10 x 6 1/2 inches. Score at 5 inches to create a card 5 x 6 1/2 inches. Optional: The back of this card can be attached to a piece of gold metallic card stock.
Use the Garden Notes Frame It/Stitched Rectangles die set to die cut the Ivory card stock frame. Use a smaller Frame It/ Stitched Rectangles die to die cut a piece of ivory card stock to fit inside the frame (5 x 3 inches).
Use the berry branch stamp in the Poinsettia stamp set to stamp the branch in the center of the rectangle piece. Use masking tape to go around the edges of this piece to mask the center of the card. Use Tea Dye Distress Ink to sponge inside the masked area to create a border for the stamped image. Color the berry branch. Use a thin line black marker to create small dots on the ends of each berry.
Use the Words 5- Winter Sentiments die set, and gold metallic card stock, to die cut the word 'Joy'. Attach to the card as shown.
Use Gold Line Peel Off Stickers to outline the outer edge of the frame.
