My lovely blogging friend Maureen sent me this Darice embossing folder 'Circle Interlock as a thank you gift and I had it in the back of my mind that I had a Christmas paper in my stash with the same pattern on. A search of said stash revealed that I did, in burgundy (a small piece and green a whole sheet.. I chose to use the burgundy and matched it to a piece of card stock of the same shade which I embossed with the folder. The sentiment came from a paper stack 'Forever Christmas Cards' paper by Hot Off The Press which I think was a freebie in a magazine.
The remainder of the card stock I used to make the Poinsettia flowers. (blooming Poinsettia style 861 by Poppy Stamps). Gems from my stash for the stamens.
