Another card with Christmas blessings

Can you believe we are only two weeks away from Christmas?! Are you ready for the holiday season? Got all your Christmas cards made? If not, here is another card to get you inspired!

I just realized I haven’t done a challenge for so long, so I created this card to enter into the PPA148 – Seasons Greetings Color Challenge. The combination of these three colours gave a lot of elegance to my card.


  • I had the poinsettia image heat embossed in gold on both the Always Artichoke and Cherry Cobbler cardstock. The red leafy part of the image on the Cherry Cobbler cardstock was snipped out using my best friend – the Paper Snips.
  • The Paper Snips was also used to distress the edges of the Always Artichoke to create a vintage look.
  • The Cherry Cobbler cardstock in the background was dry embossed using the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder, and to add even more interest to the vintage look of this card, I attached an Antique Brad to the corner – quick and easy!


  • The Basic Pearls Jewel Accents are just perfect sizes to add as finishing to the poinsettias.
