Hello everyone!!

HAPPY World Card Making Day!!  YAY!!!

I have a one layer Christmas card to show you today!! I hope to get in the craft room later this afternoon when i get home for work. I have a birthday card and gift i have to get done, along with a zillion other things!!  lol

At first i was going to stamp the poinsettia's in pinks and reds, but then looking at all my inks, i realized i haven;t used any purple lately, after a little inking i found a combination that i liked.

To make the flowers, i started with Winter Wisteria. Then for the second layer i used Plum Pudding, but i stamped it off, then i did it again. Weird i know, but full strength was too dark and one stamp off was not enough. Last i used royal velvet.

I stamped the leaves and sentiment. Then i used watermark ink and stamped the flower centers then embossed them with sliver. Last i rounded the bottom left corner.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful World Card Making Day!

  1. Beautiful! I love the purples - so elegant :)

  2. Dana this is so pretty. I love the purples. It won't be long before a geneticist somewhere creates a purple poinsettia so I don't think you're far off in your color choice. It's beautiful :)

  3. so pretty, dana! the stamps and inks from PTI are so nice.

  4. Wow! That is stunning! So soft and pretty:)
