I Brake For….Poinsettias!

Hello my stamping friends!  It’s my turn on the I Brake For Stamps blog.

I hope your Thanksgiving was full of joy, family, friends and food!  Now we are in full swing for Christmas!  I have most of my cards completed and my shopping is about 90%  done.  Ok, I cheat a little – I live far from my family so most of them get gift cards to their favorite stores, which makes my shopping very easy to do.  So I tend to focus on pretty packaging for the gift cards – making and embellishing envelopes to hold the gift cards.

Today I have a very pretty card to show you.

It uses only one stamp – actually only part of the stamp.  The stamp is called Poinsettias and can be found here.  The stamp has two poinsettia blooms but I only used one for this card.

Since the image is traditional and classic I wanted to keep that feeling with the card.  I used a fancy swirly die cut in white and mounted it on white cardstock. I used a spray adhesive on the die cut – found that it works best with those die cuts that have lots of open areas.  And I  love the white on white look.  The poinsettia was colored with copics  and mounted on a fancy edge pierced die cut

As I have done with most of my Christmas cards, I used a stardust gel pen to add some sparkle to the image  – here is a close up.

Hop on over to the IBFS store to find thousands of stamps – there is something for everyone there!

Thanks for stopping by today!
