I wanted to share a Christmas card today. I know, it's too early! But, if you don't get started now, you will be that person still making your Christmas cards on December 23rd! {wink}
Each year, I make a handful of very fancy Christmas cards for my local friends and for some of my family members. Since this type is hard to mail, I only do a few! This year I used the 2015 Christmas paper, Sparkling Poinsettia. I used on of the 6x6 panels for the card front, and then added 6 pounds of flowers and leaves! (Well, maybe not 6 pounds...)
I stamped the Sparkling Poinsettia stamp onto ivory linen paper with gold ink and then cut out the flowers with the matching Sparkling Poinsettia die. I created the dark red flowers with the NEW Classic Rose stamp set. I stamped all the different sizes onto dark red paper with gold ink. 
I used the leaves from the Classic Rose stamp set and the leaves from the Large Sparkling Poinsettia stamp set. I stamped the leaves on two different shades of green paper. 
I added another of the 6x6 pre-printed panels to the inside of the card. Easy as pie.
I decided to add two of the pre-printed tags since the card front looked a little empty. (We cannot have THAT!) To see how to make flowers, make sure you check out all the Heartfelt Creations videos HERE
