Pink Poinsettia

Pink Poinsettia 03Heartfelt Creations Pink Poinsettia Card

Hello, Friends!

I’m back with another card that I created with the wonderful Festive Christmas Collection from Heartfelt Creations.  This pink poinsettia card has a lovely white embossed background, an elegantly stamped sentiment and a holiday worthy pink poinsettia and silk ribbon embellishment.  You’ll find a complete supply list and a detailed tutorial for making this card at the end of this post.

Pink Poinsettia 01aI embossed this pearlized cardstock, then added luscious Rose Silky Crush Ribbon and a sparkly poinsettia to the base of the card.  The ribbon was “scrunched” and held in place with little dots of hot glue.

Pink Poinsettia 02aI just love the font on this wonderful sentiment stamp from the Doves of Peace PreCut set.  It’s classic, and elegant and stamps a bold, crisp greeting.  Who could ask for anything more?

Pink Poinsettia 04aThe inside of the card could just as easily be used on the outside.  These papers are so gorgeous, and the sentiment panels make finishing a card quick and easy.

Have you started making your holiday cards yet?  The only ones I’ve made have been sent in for design team samples, so I really need to get going on that project!  I did pull all my holiday stamps and papers out so that when I have a minute here or there, I can work on them.  I usually make about 50 Christmas cards.  How about you?  I’d love to hear about it in the comment section below.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

    Beautiful Christmas card, Kathy, it’s too hot here for Christmas thinking…I just get in the mood. Love your card though, especially all the white space! Have a lovely sunday.

    I just love pink poinsettias, so I’m especially fond of this card! The inside is just as lovely as the front – who wouldn’t love receiving this beautiful card. Part of the words included in the inside sentiment come from the song, “Oh, Little Town of Bethleham” which was my mom’s favorite Christmas song. How much I’m going to miss her this holiday! She would have loved your card. I haven’t started making holiday cards yet, but I need to get started as September seems to be flying by.
