Poinsettia on Shimmery Tree

Hello everyone! Here is one of my first Christmas cards for this year. I usually make a different card for each recipient. There are so many beautiful possibilities that it is truly hard for me to choose to make just one type of Christmas card. But this year I am way far behind in my Christmas card making so I will have to limit myself to just a few different kinds.

I began with preparing my base card in white card stock. Next, I cut a panel in white a bit smaller than the front of my base and had my sentiment computer generated. My panel was then embossed with a Nellie Snellen Christmas Square 2 folder. 

The tree was cut with a Memory Box Winterland Tree die and covered with glitter. The poinsettia was cut with Sue Wilson's Mosaic Poinsettia die in red suede and Ranger Liquid Pearls was added to the center. The tree and poinsettia were then positioned and adhered to the focal panel. As a last step, the panel was adhered to the base with dimensionals and this completed my project.

Hope you liked this post. Thanks for stopping by and please come again. And I love to receive your comments so please feel free to add your thoughts.

Wow, computer generated sentiment! I have done that when I needed one that I did not have, but then I die cut it out. Does it take a lot of figuring to do what you did?
