Merriest Frames, Framed & Festive, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up!

It's Christmas Eve.  WOW did that ever come fast. This whole month has flown by. I have a Christmas card to show you today and one more tomorrow and them I will be playing with my other sets until I order the new stuff!  I always love getting new stuff!!

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

I cut a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Basic White card stock and textured it using the "Painted Texture" embossing folder. I glued that to the front of the card. I prefer glue because I know it will hold the piece better than tape will. Tape will only stick on the areas that are raised on the back. Glue will hold better in those areas. 

I die cut two ovals from the "Merriest Frames" die set using Basic White card stock. I stamped the words in the oval from the larger oval. I used Pool Party ink and the words from the "Framed & Festive" set.

The framed oval was glued to the textured piece and the word oval was glued to the center.  Then I took the other oval frame I die cut and added Dimensionals behind it. I set it in place on top of the first larger oval.

Poinsettia petals and leaves were die cut using Basic White card stock. I glued the two poinsettia flower parts together. Then the center of the poinsettia was added. This piece was glued onto the oval and the die cut leaves were slipped under. I had added a lot of glue so I knew slipping the leaves under would hold. 

I had a red embellishment and I added it to the center of the poinsettia. 

I thought the upper part of the poinsettia was sagging too much so I stacked two Dimensionals and I set it in place under the poinsettia.  And the card was done.

This was a fun card to make. I do like the white on white look.  Though I was thinking I should have used Real Red for the words instead of Pool Party but it is what it is. I like it so that's what counts!

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