Beautiful Poinsettias

Hi friends, it's Holly posting today!  How about another Christmas card to share with you?  I love making Christmas cards.  The two types of cards I make the most are Christmas cards and birthday cards.

This time I've used the gorgeous Poinsettias stamp (Stampavie) and I colored it with Copic markers.  I went back over the centers of the flowers with a glittery Stardust Pen to give them a glittery gold color.  You can see the wonderful gold shimmer in the close up picture below.  The sentiment, from the Christmas Sentiments stamp set (Impression Obsession), was stamped directly below the poinsettias.  

I really wanted the wonderful poinsettias to be the focus of my card, so I kept my card base and background very simple.  I covered my black card base (A2 size) with a sheet of paper from the Handmade Holiday 6x6 paper pad.  I cut out a border from the Anastasia border die (Cheery Lynn Designs) from black cardstock and added that to the right side of my card.  A strip of red plaid paper from the same Handmade Holiday papers was added next to the border die cut, and then I adhered my poinsettia image.  

I hope you have a wonderful and happy day celebrating Christmas with your families.  
I love the poinsettias, don't you?  Thanks, Holly!
