Framed & Festive, Boughs of Holly, Merriest Moments, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up!

Here is another card kit I had received from Terri. I changed it a little. You can see her link to the card kits here

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. This card opens on the right and the fold is on the left. 

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from the "Boughs of Holly" 12" x 12" package. It was cut at 5-1/2" x 2".  There was a 5-1/2" x 2-1/4" piece of Evening Evergreen card stock for the layer in the kit. I taped the two pieces together and then taped them to the front of the card about 1/4" from the fold.

Next I put the poinsettia together. There were two pieces in the kit, a small and a large. I added the pretty rhinestones that were included. I put Dimensionals behind it and set it aside.  

The Basic White circle was in the kit and I cut an Evening Evergreen circle and taped the two together. I added Dimensionals to the back of it and set the circle in place on the front of the card. Then I added the poinsettia. I added some glue to the two leaves that were in the kit and I slid them under the flower.

The words are from the "Framed & Festive" set and were stamped using black Memento ink. I was going to use Evening Evergreen ink but it's SO dark that it would look black anyway so I played lazy and just used the black that was sitting in front of me. I stamped the words on a piece of Basic White card stock and I trimmed them to 3/8" x 2". And then I cut a layer that measured 1/2" x 2-1/8" and I taped the two layers together. I added Dimensionals to the back and I set the words in place on the front of the card about 1/2" from the bottom edge and 1/4" from the right edge of the card and the card was done.

This was fun to make. I love card kits because all of the cutting is done for you.  Such a deal. Kind of like Paper Pumpkin, stamping with little effort or supplies!

Thank you SO much for taking your time to stop in and see today's Christmas card,

I love red poinsettias at Christmas! Your card is gorgeous! I haven't seen the kits but what you used from it made a really great card.
