Hi and welcome to all my very talented friends, and visitors.

I do hope you are not getting fed up with my Christmas cards I am showing.

I am trundling through the Christmas cards I was asked to make for my Daughter's boss, and this is another one I have made for her Mum and Dad, and it also fits the bill for the current Allsorts Challenge.

This is a 8"x8" size card.
I used 2 designer papers from the Dovecraft 12x12 Winter Blooms paper pad.
The doilies are from a cheap Chinese die.
The poinsettias are a TL die and I added some glamour dust to them.
Now I don't have a large tag die so I cut this one out by hand.

Thank you so much for your visit, and your precious time.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Hi Jenny, no I for one are not getting fed up with seeing your Christmas cards, if anything it's spurring me on to make some myself, as I'm way behind in making them this year. Lovely design, and looks great with the poinsettias on the front. Janice x

Never tire of seeing ideas for Christmas cards. This one is great and the doilies peeping out behind the flowers are super - looks as if the cheap die was a good buy as they've cut well.

I never tire of Christmas cards Jenny, in fact I will be here "borrowing" ideas lol. There is nothing like a poinsettia on a Christmas card. A couple of Christmases ago I managed to keep one in flower until the summer, not had any luck since!! This design is gorgeous and another winner for sure xx

Kathleen said...

Certainly does fit the bill Jenny and I never get tired of Christmas cards.
A great design, super papers and great glittery poinsettia's and no doubt the inside is as good as the outside.

Thank you for joining our 'Use 2 or more DP's' challenge this week at Allsorts.

Hugs, Sarn x

Cara said...

This is so pretty, love the sparkle on the flowers. You won't bore me with Christmas cards, yours are always so fabulous x

Pamellia said...

This is just amazing Jenny! I get such a warm fuzzy feeling when I see plaid and poinsettias for Christmas. It reminds me the holidays at my parents house because that's just how Mom used to decorate. Such a wonderful traditional card and those white doilies tucked behind are a gorgeous addition! You've motivated me to get into my craft room and put together another Christmas card! Sending hugs Jenny, I hope all is well.

KandA said...

Gorgeous card Jenny, love the tradional colours and the fabulous poinsettias and doiley dies. The tag looks great and is just as good if not better than a die-cut one xx

pam said...
