I finally had a chance to play with a new set from The Greetery called With Love, At Christmas this weekend, and it ended up being a perfect flower for this current challenge and also to help finish up my stash of Christmas cards! Because I wanted to try out different color combinations for the Poinsettia bouquet, I have a few cards to show you...
For my 1st card I stamped the bouquet in traditional reds and greens, and then mounted to a white card base along with 2 layers of the Crimped Frame Die. I added my sentiment to the smaller of the panels using The Greetery's Christmas Eve stamp set and then finished with a few red enamel dots.
All of my cards use the same Poinsettia bouquet from the With Love, At Christmas...I just used different colors and layouts. For my 2nd card I used Aqua's for my leaves and Berry for my Poinsettia's, and then mounted to a panel that I used a Spellbinders Hemstitched Die on, and then layered a piece of Berry cs behind the panel before mounting to a white card base.
Here's a closer up so you can see some of the lovely detail in the bouquet. The sentiment is also from the With Love, At Christmas stamp set.
For my 3rd card I used brighter greens and dusty pink/reds along with the Terrarium Die (small) from The Greetery. I blended a little bit of light yellow onto my background before attaching the bouquet and die, and then added the "joy & peace" sentiment at the bottom (also from the With Love, At Christmas set).
My final card uses the same colors as the last card, but I used one of the Macra-Made For You dies for the hanging holder and the flower pot. I used SU!'s Subtle embossing folder for the white background layer (stamped my sentiment first) and then attached to a Cherry Cobbler card base (same as flower pot), before adding my floral bouquet. A few diamond gems finished off my last card.
So there you have my four CAS Christmas cards using the same stamp set, but with just different color combinations and layouts. LOTS of beautiful cards from the DT and already in the gallery, so check them out for inspiration and then play along right HERE.
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
