Beautiful Baubles, In Every Season, Swirls and Curls, Christmas Cards

I have made a Christmas card for you tonight using the Beautiful Baubles and In Every Seasons stamp sets.

The In Every Seasons stamp set has a poinsettia stamp so I thought I would make a wreath out of this lovely flower. I can’t remember seeing many if any ponsettias in real life until my husband and I moved to live in the United States back in 1993 which is a life time ago. Now back in Australia they are everywhere at Christmas.

I stamped a number of them onto water colour paper with memento ink and then got out the  2nd assortment of water colour pencils that are available until the end of this month.

 I used cherry cobbler, flirty flamingo, crushed curry and garden green. Then I went over them with the blender pen as it has a finer tip than the aqua painter. After I was happy with all of the flowers I used the wink of stella to add some bling. Everyone needs bling at Christmas.

As you can see I needed to cut them out to make my wreath, but I think it was worth it. I adhered them to the very vanilla background that had been put through the bigshot and the new swirls and curls textured impression embossing folder. Isn’t it just lovely?

Now for the sentiment I used the new Beautiful Baubles set coming out in the holiday catalogue for that as I thought it fitted so nicely with the poinsettias. I have heat embossed copper onto shimmery white card stock and then cut it out with the stitch shaped framelits. Before adhering that over the top of the flowers I added some copper metallic thread.

No wreath is finished without a bow so the copper trim is perfect for this card to finish it off. And everything is added to the base card of cherry cobbler.

 Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the very talented, Rachel Woollard

Oh wow Sharon, that is amazing! I cannot believe you cut all of those flowers by hand, it must have taken you ages. It is very effective though.
