Christmas Poinsettia Cards

I am well on my way to making some Christmas cards.  I purchased some products from which is located in Mesa, AZ, just down the road.  Turns out, if you pick up your purchase they offer a free gift.  In this case, these lovely patterned papers which I turned into Christmas cards.  A simple design, but very effective.

I used Fired Brick Distress Oxide ink to stamp the pattern onto these poinsettia die cuts and spritzed with a water bottle to make the color turn chalky.  It is a subtle pattern and works very well on these cards.  The gold foil was a clearance pack of artist trading cards - simple to stamp in Archival Ink and tie with twine.  A pile for the stash which will be used in the coming days to write letters to family and friends.  Yay!

Thank you so much for your kind words. Isn't it fun to encourage one another, even from a distance?
