Reverse Die Cut Poinsettias

it’s my turn to share my Rudolph Days Challenge design team card and encourage you to set aside the 25th of each month from January to November to create your holiday cards.

I originally was going to showcase this die with foil but after a few frustrating attempts, I quit and created this card very quickly. I die cut the Sizzix Tim Holtz mixed media Christmas poinsettia corner twice from white cardstock and sponged with distress inks: scattered straw, salty ocean, twisted citron, and evergreen bough. The envelope was placed underneath to get a light impression with the same distress inks.

I finished off by stamping the sentiment from the Visible Image Sentimental Christmas stamp set. I love this set; it’s perfect to send cards to those who might not be so merry during the holidays.

You only need to create 1 holiday project and leave a comment on Maureen’s blog to be eligible for a lovely prize and you have until September 30 to join in. Countdown to mailing those holiday cards – 2 months!

I’m also playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Card and Matching Envelope challenge.

thanks for popping by.

  1. This is a stunning card, Linda. I love the beautiful colours you blended to get this fab depth of colour! What a great idea to do the envelope by sliding under to catch the pattern of the die cut.

    Thanks for working so hard for the Design team at the Rudolph dAys Challenge.
