Hi everybody! A very early Happy Saturday to you! I hope you are going to do something fun this weekend! I have a project to share that I created with the new Prickley Pear Stamps Sketched Florals Poinsettia stamp set! This is the new set they just released a few days ago and I created a pretty Christmas card in non-traditional colors of teal and purple with lots of light green thrown in. LOVE this color combo, especially for a Christmas card!
I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with plaid patterned paper layers which I adhered to the card base. Using the Sizzix Embroidery Thinlits, I die cut the hoop from CutCardStock Basis Teal and adhered it to the card front. I stamped the poinsettia image in Ranger black soot archival ink on Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock, stamped it again in Versamark and heat embossed it with Hero Arts clear embossing powder. I colored the image with alcohol markers, cut it with the center die from the Sizzix Embroidery Thinlits, and adhered it in the center of the embroidery hoop. I stamped the sentiment on a scrap piece of Solar White cardstock, trimmed it and adhered it to the bottom of the card front. I added an Eyelet Outlet 3mm green pearl bling strip across the top and three pearls on each side of the sentiment.
And one more look… I’m absolutely thrilled with how this turned out! The embroidery hoop is such a fun element to add to this Christmas card!
