Using Non-Traditional Colors for a Christmas Card

Hello friends!
I know I just posted a Fall card yesterday and now we are into Christmas cards already! LOL

s

Since it's still way early for Christmas, I am using non-traditional colors for this Christmas card. The non-traditional colors will ease us into the festive Christmas card-making. When December comes, I will be all about red, green and gold and silver....

Merry & Bright-001

The new Poinsettia Bough  is such a gorgeous and intricate die. I had the absolute pleasure in using it. My design is super simple. Basically, I sprayed a sheet of paper with spray mists and paint before I went to bed one night.

The next morning, I made the die cut and assemble. Done.

The die set comes with two small poinsettia leaves. They are perfect and easy for layering the largest poinsettia. I can not stress enough about using mist and sprays for the card-making projects.

 Poinsettia Bough will certainly come in very handy for Christmas card-making. 
BTW there is a 15% off sale with Impression Obsession over Simon Says Stamp.

 I recently got this Foliage one and can't wait to share my project with you.
There is a big event tomorrow in this blog. I hope you will come back soon. Thank you!

This is just so pretty. Love the script bhind the gorgeous sprayed diecut. I can see this could easily be mass produced. Especially with a MISTI.
