First two cards are more of the last ones made for this yr and not shown yet.
1st card is a digi by Little Claires Design called Poinsettia Corner. I do like to see them on christmas Cards.
I have coloured using my Graph'it and Promarker pens and gel pen. I coloured two images up and then
fussy cut the large poinsettia out and adhered to the first image raising up to give a 3d effect.
Sentiment is aTonic die Modern Merry Christmas.
Second Card. is another digi by Little claire Designs called Poinsettias. Coloured with my Graph'it pens and promarkers plus a gold gel pen. I then die cut is using Spellbinders A2 Floral Ribbon Threader. The sentiment is again the Tonic die Modern Merry Christmas.
Then I was tidying up my desk from doing all the christmas paper envelopes and had a pile of small snippet strips over. Well I couldn't just throw them in the bin could I, so I sorted into colours and made up the following 5 sheets by adhering using ds tape to use as backgrounds ready for next yrs cards.
So my card is using a die cut by Chloe Endean Designs that has a matching Embossing folder. I embossed a sheet of white linen stock card and then used one of the sheets from above to die cut the poinsettia die and also the sentiment. I adhered the flowers more or less over the matching embossed flowers and then added the sprigs of holly randomly onto the background. The 3 red pearls were also out on my desk so waste not want not.

We are not out of the woods yet.
Lovely cards Mrs A - the first one is my favourite as I love the layered poinsettia.
Gosh you have been busy with your waste not want not activities - throwing bits away is so difficult isn't it 😊. Great cards and clever use of the snippets for the two challenges.
So lovely are all your cards Mrs A and if l was to pick a favourite as Kath l would pick no 3 purely because of the snippets used on the image and l am a great fan of 3D effects the poinsettia is amazing as is the layerings beautiful cards x
I love a poinsettia on a Christmas card Valery Anne and yours are gorgeous. I especially love the squashed one and the die cut flowers.
Lovely cards my friend! The first layered poinsettia is my fave!
Hi, ValeryAnne, I also like poinsettias but don't use them enough.
