Incredibly quick and easy Christmas card made with Stampin' Up products 
from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalogue

As always with metallic cards, I had enormous problems photographing this card! I haven't done it justice - it looks so much prettier in person!

Such an easy but elegant Christmas card! 
Forever Gold and Plush Poinsettia Specialty Papers,  Poinsettia Die

This card continues with my exploration of the Poinsettia Place Suite and the more I use it, the more I love it!  See more here and  here.

This card was sooo quick and easy!  

I made a base card with Thick Whisper White card, then cut layers with Gold Foil Sheet and normal Whisper White.  I gave the top white layer some texture with the Subtle Embossing Folder and then adhered the gold centre piece from the Forever Gold Specialty Paper.  

TIP:  To minimise usage, I like to cut out the centres of my metallic layers, leaving a frame shape which is covered by the top layer!

With the coordinating Poinsettia Dies, it's so easy to cut out soft, velvety Plush Poinsettias!

The flower was really easy to cut from the Plush Poinsettia paper using the coordinating Poinsettia die.  Then I just added one of the Beaded Pearls to finish it off!

All of the large poinsettias on this sheet fit the die.
