This is one of those posts that I do back to front and show you the picture further down so that it minimises the chances of hubby seeing it if I inadvertently leave the page open on my computer. I've got in early with his Chrismas card this year!
I've had a few people tell me that they'd like to see the poinsettia with script and border image that I used in the last post in more detail because those I used for those cards were small to keep the sketch right. I hope you'll be able to see this one okay. I've used the predominantly red version here but it also comes as a predominantly green version. The background behind the script is clear so that you can put it over any digi paper you want to or print it onto any coloured paper you have in your stash. I've put one of the sheets from the 8x8 Gold Collection behind it and used one of the others for the base card. I placed it so that the gold paper looks like a mat behind the main image and then matted it onto a piece of mirri card leaving a very narrow 2mm border. I cropped the same image so that I had just the poinsettia and some of the script to minimise waste and printed it off another two times so that I could decoupage it which gives the card lovely dimension. The red paper is from the woodgrain brights collection and I've matted all three pieces onto gold mirri too. (There are 3 pieces but it isn't so easy to see that in the photo because of the flowers. The flowers are the 3D Short Petal and have been printed onto the back of the gold mirri before cutting out. The sentiment is computer generated and the only embellishments are the papermania glittery dome stickers and the two stickles glues in the middle of the flowers and the poinsettia.
