Merry Christmas

Suzanne Cannon's A Way With Words Flourished Christmas Minis die set is such a beautiful die set to create elegant Christmas cards.  For this card I combined this die set along with the new small A Way With Words Merry Christmas and Garden Notes Poinsettia die set.

A Way With Words, Flourished Christmas Minis
A Way With Words Flourished Christmas Minis

This is a 6-inch card created by using a piece of the Silver Gray Soft Finish Cardstock.

Use the ModaScrap Wood Effects card stock and cut one strip of the wood grain and attach to the left side of the card.  

Use the Fitted Squares die set and die cut a 4 inch square of ivory card stock.  Use the Gold Border Peel Off Stickers and place stickers around the edges. 

Use the A Way With Words Flourished Christmas Minis die set and die cut the ornament and the reindeer, using gold metallic card stock.  Attach to the center of the ivory square.   Use the gold Dot Peel Off Stickers to add snow around the ornament, as shown.  Attach this square to the top of the card.

Use the A Way With Words small Merry Christmas die set and die cut the sentiment using gold metallic card stock.  Add to the lower right corner of the card.  Add three gold Dot Peel Off Stickers, as shown.

Use the Garden Notes Poinsettia die set and create one poinsettia.  I used an off-white pearlized card stock for the poinsettia and shaded the center using light pink PanPastel.  (This card stock did not shape nearly as well as the white Soft Finish Cardstock I usually use.)  Shape the poinsettia and leaves using the Flower Tool Kit and assemble using Kids Choice Glue.  Add yellow and green Prills to the center.  Sponge light green ink on the leaves.  Sponge pink PanPastels on the edges of the leaves.  Attach the poinsettia to the lower left corner. 

Use the Garden Notes Whitepine Bough & Pinecone die set and die cut 4 pine boughs  Glue the boughs under the poinsettia.

This card can be mailed in one of the clear acrylic boxes.

I am a fan of your pink/white poinsettias. Your poinsettias are beautiful. I have not found pink/white poinsettias for years to decorate my house at Christmas time. I miss them. The musical feel of the deer on your card is lovely. Certainly this is a die set on my wish list. Thanks for the inspiration.
