I wanted to make a card for the The Doc's Aunt whose Birthday falls at christmas time that had an element of Christmas to it but was still distinctly a Birthday card. She loves Poinsettias so I kept the rest of the card CAS with no added sparkle or glitter. Hope I have pulled it off.
I used plain white card stock that I embossed using my Scor - Pal to create the lines. (A little Pixie taught me this! Thanks Di.) The sentiment is from a stamp set that I gave the same embossed line treatment to. The die used is called Blooming Poinsettia by Poppystamps and is a complete joy to use. The flowers and leaf cut cleanly and are not left sticking to your cutting plates. Below is a close up of just the flowers.
