Joyful Christmas Wishes

Hello Friends! Happy Friday! I wanted to pop in to give you a sneak peek of one of the Christmas cards I worked on with my dear friends, Caryl and Mary recently at a Christmas Card Camp.  I love going to stamping events, because there are sooo many wonderful ideas shared. Take a look at this one...

Isn't it gorgeous?! The poinsettias were stamped onto rose card stock and embossed with brown embossing powder. I cut them out and sponged each bract with red ink. I love the end result! It looks like the poinsettia is glowing; and that touch of gold glitter in the center adds a beautiful sparkle. The sentiment tag was stamped, lightly sponged and then I added a few hand drawn doodles to finish it off.

That's all I have for today. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Oh so pretty, Barb. I really like the little touches you add, a bit of embossing, some sponging and, of course, the sparkle. Happy to hear you enjoy your stamp camps, too. Have a happy weekend!

Barb, the brown embossing powder on the red cardstock is utterly fantastic! It's a beautiful combination. The poinsettia does seem to glow. The gold center is perfect. I love the doodles on the sentiment. This card is a true work of art!
