Poinsettia on kraft card Christmas card

 Hello everyone and welcome back to Christmas Card Challenges where we were asked to

CASE a Design Team member's card.

I chose to go back to March 2014 and saw Jennifer Meyer's lovely card. 

The challenge Jenn was creating for asked that she use chevrons, but I changed this to stripes, and I used kraft, red and white for my colour scheme.

I stamped the striped panel in white pigment ink and left it to dry while I cut the the scalloped circle and the poinsettia flower on my Silhouette Cameo from a NBUS cut file. I placed  a stitched circle die cut onto the scalloped circle and after shaping the flower, I arranged and glued it on.

The red banner was cut with a Papertrey Ink banner die and I fussy cut the white one to be a mat for it. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink and embossed in white.

If you would like to join in, you CASE ant past or present DT member, but don't worry if you don't want to try it because you can enter any Christmas card into the challenge.

I'd like to make this my final entry for Darnell's NBUS Challenge

and the Christmas Cards All Year Long challenge - anything goes
