Life has been super hectic lately, so I apologize for being M.I.A. Things are finally slowing down and I should have more time to stamp. I thought I would show you a card that we made in class a few weeks ago. Actually, we made the card below (without the flowers). I love poinsettias, so the one above is my favorite, but if you need a simpler version, then this is for you...
Both cards are fabulous, but we were making three each of 4 cards, so we didn't have time to color. I like them both, but they each have their own appeal. This one is great when you are short on time; it is also a little more masculine. Of course, you know if I can add a flower to it, I definitely will, so for me the one with the beautiful flowers wins; but honestly it comes down to personal preference and availability of time.
The basics are the same for both cards. I used Real Red ink on Crumb Cake to create the background using the Buffalo Check background stamp (#147797/#147794). The greeting is from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set (#147702) stamped in Cherry Cobbler on Whisper White, and the subtle flowers behind the sentiment are stamped in Crumb Cake ink. We also added a piece of Burlap Trim (#147889) and some die cut leaves from the Pretty Pines Thinlits (#141851) in Old Olive and Mossy Meadow cardstock.
The beautiful flowers are from the Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set, colored with Stampin' Blends, and die cut with the coordinating Detailed Poinsettia Thinlits Dies (#147925). I promise to do better and share more often. We have our finaly 2018 Artisan Design Team blog hop next week, so keep an eye open for that.
