Adding to my Christmas card stash

Yep, I really need to get a wriggle on with making more Christmas cards. I send out about 100 each year (doing my bit to keep Australia Post in business!) and so far I have 20 cards made plus I have a commission order for 50 cards that I need to get started so the challenges over at AAA Cards #119 Christmas in July and CAS Christmas Poinsettia were timely prompter for me.

I used an old stamp set from Stampin Up called ‘Joyful Christmas’ that I stamped in Momento black ink and masked off the poinsettia and then stamped the leaves. I coloured the image in with my SU Stampin Blends in Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler and Poppy Parade. I stamped the sentiment and popped it up with dimensionals over a bit of the flower.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

  1. Gorgeous design Tristan!! Love that beautiful poinsettia and how you have it off the edge. The colours are bright and beautiful and really pop against all that glorious white space. Wonderful CAS design! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Christmas!
