Christmas Poinsettias

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

I hope you have had a good week and that you have something nice planned for the weekend. Though this time I don't think the weather is going to be on our side. I have helped at two felting workshops this week. My latest make is on my Felting Creations page. I am starting to feel a bit more like me again and I am getting on better with my crafting.

I am very behind with my Christmas card making. I need a design to make 10 Christmas cards for my husband to use at work.  I have been trying a few things out.

I found some white glittery card already embossed in my stash. I used the Snowflake Lattice embossing folder from Creative Expressions. The ivy was cut with a die set from Creative Expressions. 

The Poinsettias were cut with the Poinsettia die from John Next Door. For each one I cut two in red and one in green (for the leaves). Everything was shaped with a ball tool on foam. The centres were cut with a Sizzix die and I added beads for texture. 

The sentiment was cut with a Tattered Lace die. 

I don't think this the design I will use but it is another card for my stash. 

Have a great weekend. 

I would like to enter the following challenges. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

Gorgeous card Jackie. I am glad to hear you are feeling more like yourself. I always plan to batch make cards but end up getting bored so I tend to make different cards unless something works particularly well. Your husband must be very pleased with these cards.
Enjoy your felting
