Poinsettia Parade for Merry Monday


Hi friends! I am back today with a clean and simple Christmas card for your inspiration. Well, it may be clean but not sure quite how simple it was, since the first two attempts wound up in the trash. No stamps or ink was used, just some beautiful dies including my NBUS Poinsettia Parade die. All of the card stock came from my SSS June card kit, which wasn't Christmas-y at all!


Just one challenge today. I am working very hard on trying to get a couple of Christmas cards done each week, and I love to play along with Merry Monday every chance I get. This week the challenge is to make a card with a frame on it, which gave me a chance to use my SSS Frames Dies. I think I've only ever used them once before.


Products Used:
Card Stock: White, Green Leaf, Schoolhouse Red (SSS)
Tools: Big Shot, Hand Lettered Holiday Dies (W+9), Stitched Rectangle Dies (Lawn Fawn), Poinsettia Parade and Frames Dies (SSS)
Accessories: Gold Foil Cardstock (SU), Gold Sparkle Enamel Dots (Simple Stories)

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have an awesome day!
