    Red and Pink Velvet Poinsettia Cards

    I was so surprised how these two cards turned out.  They are so beautiful the pictures of them do not do them justice.

    I die cut the poinsettias and leaves  out of velvet paper and used some vellum in the background. I then added a small strip of silver along both sides to add a little bling. For the center of the flowers I used a little bit of yellow stickles glue.  On the pink card I used some pearls near the Merry Christmas. I used two different sentiments on these cards.  You can see the red one pretty good but the pink one says,”May your season be filled with all the wonder and blessings of Christmas.”

    To mail these cards so that the flower does not become a crushed mess I would add a small piece of cardboard on top of the flower.

    Red Poinsettia with Snow Background

    Building the poinsettia for this card was a little challenging but still doable.

    The poinsettia has three different size layers to the flower that is stacked one on top of the other.  For the leaves I just tucked them in behind the flower.

    I added some gold ribbon on the base of the card and a Merry Christmas sentiment on the front.  For  the inside I added a sentiment “May the spirit of Peace gently fill your heart and home  in this most wonderful time of year.”

    I had to make the card so that it wouldn’t get crushed when it is mailed, so by adding a layer of cardboard on top of the card will prevent this from happening.

    Elf Quote and Seasons Greetings

    The Elf movie is a standard around our house.  We love the movie and this card is made after the movie. I made a little elf hat on the quote and added a little tree in the corner on the inside.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    For my next card I used die cuts of trees and snow mounds to create a winter scene. The background was made using ink and blending brushes then sprinkles of water to create little stars.  Nice card that could be used for the winter season.

    Melted Snowman and Old Fashioned Snowman in the Pine Trees

    I have to say that making these cards was very relaxing.  My first card is poor old Frosty, all melted from drinking hot  cocoa.  My idea for this card is to include a packet of cocoa for the recipient to drink.  I colored him with alcohol markers and added a little shimmer with the ribbon.

    For my next card I wanted an old fashion kinda snowman.  I stamped the pine trees in green ink and the snowman in a dark gray.  I then colored the snowman’s hat and scarf.  For the background I die cut a frame and added glittered gold and white string and tied it into a neat bow.
