Poinsettia Christmas Card to match Gift Box

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How has your week been?  I bet we are all going to have a busy weekend. Last week was good for us. We saw Michael Bublé at the O2 Arena it was such an amazing experience. It was so good to share it with our good friends. The following evening we all  saw a Beatles Tribute band at a local club. We do like to get out when we can.

When it came to sorting through our Christmas cards I realised that I didn't have one for my parents in-law. I had made the box for my mother-in-law so I decided to make a card to match.

The backing paper had been in my stash for a while. 

This is the first time I have used this die from the John Next Door range. It is called the Renmore Die Set. The sentiment die is from Crafter's Companion. 

I made the poinsettias with the Poinsettia die and the Swirl Poinsettia dies. 

Here is a picture I took of Mr Bublé at the concert. I do have a zoom on my camera. 

Here is the card with the box. I even made a small version of this card with the smaller poinsettias cut with the dies. I am still not sure if I have enough Christmas card. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Happy Crafting

Lovely, festive card, Jackie. You can't beat red and gold! I love poinsettias, but I've never managed to keep one for more than a week or so - paper ones last so much better.... In case I don't get here again before the big day, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas
