Another Christmas Card design

Several weeks ago I started making Christmas Cards, I am going to post them as I complete them so here's another one that I came up with. I love the dry embossed poinsettias in the background with the stark contrast of the cherry flower against the white. It seems to pop off the card. This is a very easy card to make, the hardest part is waiting for the smooch spray to dry on the flower so the rest of the card can be assembled.
  • The base of the card is cherry cobbler 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded in half.
  • Then I took a piece of white card stock 4 x 3 1/4" and ran it through the Big Shot with the petals a plenty ef.
  • The flower is made by using the 5 petal flower punch. I used the paper snips to cut into the center a little bit more between each of the petals and then did an embossing line right down the middle of each petal and leaf. I then folded each petal and gave it a good pinch. I used stickles in gold for the 3 dots in the center then sprayed them with smooch spray and let them dry overnight. 
  • The old olive piece 4 x 2" is stamped with the sentiment in cherry cobler  ink.
  • The dsp is Jolly Holiday (retired). 1 1/8" piece on top and a 1" piece on the bottom both punched with the scallop trim border punch.
  • Then a strip of cherry cobbler cs punched with the dotted ribbon border punch and adhered to the seam.
