July Christmas Card 1

So this Stylish Christmas set on page 101 of the Annual catalog caught my eye immediately; and I just had to use it with my Christmas card class in July just after the catalog started.  There is just something about the flow and movement of those holly leaves that is beautiful to me.  I tried to capture that movement in this card.
We used rich colors - and layered two of the poinsettia flowers over each other.  The top flower is cut on three of the curved petals and curled up to give it real dimension.  I colored our gems with a Daffodil Delight dark blend alcohol marker an added several of them to the center of the flower.
Then we finished it by stamping both the envelope and the inside of the card.  I think it is just such an amazing card and set.  Can't wait to do more with it at a future class.
You can order all of the supplies to make these cards on my website - just click on any of the product images below to go right to my store.  Don't forget it's BONUS DAYS - so for every $50 you spend in one order in August, you'll receive a $5.00 email coupon to use in September.  Please be sure to save those emails, as they cannot be replaced!
See you soon - more Alaska cruising on my next post!  ~Maureen Please use my current Hostess code -
