I love Poinsettias; it’s just that simple. It doesn’t matter what color the bracts (modified leaves) are; white, pink, red to purple, yellow, orange, or salmon. I love them all! Every year I look forward to finding them in the store, purchasing them, and bringing them home with me. They just make me smile.
Isn’t it amazing how the use of the Ornate Layer dies, Scripty 3D embossing folder, and Poinsettia dies really add to the overall look of the card? Such small little touches, however, they really change what could be an average card into something beautiful. Are you adding die cuts and embossing folders to your cards?
My Perfectly Plaid Christmas card uses the classic Christmas Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper. Are you wondering where to find the beautiful copper dotted paper? Look no further than the Copper Dotted Treat Bags from Stampin’ Up! I cut the bag into strips and used it as another copper accent for my card.
Aren’t the Heirloom Frames Dies and Embossing Folders beautiful? I was looking for something to enhance the Detailed Deer die and the Feels Like Frost DSP; I think the Heirloom Frames and embossing folders are perfect.
Check out the detail on the embossed oval — isn’t it amazing? It looks so complicated, however, die-cutting and embossing the oval is deceptively simple. Be sure to watch my video below for a few simple tricks that simplify the process.
The small flourish at the bottom of my card is such a simple touch, but it helps to balance the sentiment. Both the greeting and the embellishment are available in the Dashing Deer stamp set.

It’s the time of year when we deck the halls with holly. This time of year is by far my very favorite. I love celebrating the birth of Christ, cold nights, fireplaces blazing, Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel, the mantle decorated with holly, lights on the homes in my neighborhood, and the kindness of strangers.
Check out the shimmer and shine of the holly berries, aren’t they beautiful. I achieved it with the new Shimmery Crystal Effects from Stampin’ Up!
Whenever I can, I love stamping in the lower right corner on the inside of my cards. Doing this is such a simple touch; however, it adds additional interest. You might try it on your next card. I hope my Christmas card will inspire you to deck the halls with holly!

My Joy to the World Christmas card is both stunning and easy to create. I thoroughly enjoy creating a variety of Christmas cards and love how this turned out. Gail Ellis of Blue Rose Paper Treasures inspired my card.
I love how this card conveys the Warmth of God’s Peace at Christmas. I feel His peace all year long; however, during the holiday season, it feels even stronger. Hopefully, during this time of year, your heart will be warmed with God’s Peace.
The God’s Peace stamp set is perfect for Christmas. The sentiments are heartfelt, and the glow of the candles can fill your heart with the warmth of God’s Peace at Christmas. I colored the image with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers from Stampin’ Up! They blend so beautifully and are so very easy to use. I hope you will give them a try!
