Paper Craft Crew


Card Sketch #161

Reason for the Season Christmas Card







Welcome back as I share this weeks card created for the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 161.  It has been a rough week with the family getting sick with the "Back to School Crud!"  Caleb started getting sick then I got it and I think I've been hit the hardest with my sinuses taking the brunt of this crud.  Even thought I feel yucky, I did manage to get a card done for this weeks Paper Craft Crew Card Challenge.

The Poinsettia is my favorite Christmas flower and this stamp set is gorgeous.  I stamped CYCI082-Pam001the outline of the flower on Watercolor Paper with Archival Basic Black Stampin' Up! Ink then I stamped the flower and leaf layers but spritzed them with water to create a watercolor effect.  I used the Oval Framelits to cut the oval shape.  The new Lots of Labels Framelits creates a great Cherry Cobbler background accent to the oval shape.  I attached the stamped Poinsettia with the Lots of Labels accent to a Garden Green card front which is dry embossed using the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  

I added the sentiment using a stamp from the Happy Scenes Stamp Set then added the Crushed Curry Stars as a nice bright contrast.  The finishing accents are the randomly placed Rhinestone Jewels.
