What do you think of when you think of the holidays? For me one of the things is poinsettias, since every year they were a gift to family and friends and decorated our house and the local mall. Remember the poinsettia trees of the 70’s? So the Rustic Crate Bundle (162268) brings back those childhood memories of that bold pop of red again the cold snowy landscapes.
And of course, Frosty and the green house that contained those exotic plants, the poinsettia. lol
Today’s cards use the poinsettia to create lovely cards. This first one has a traditional feel with its Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler color palet.
Once again a little shine has been added with the Simply Elegant Trim (155766) and interest has been added to the background with a bit of our Blending Brushes and splatter using our Water Painters (151298). Adding splatter like this is quick and easy to do simply pick up some diluted reinker and tap against your finger until you get the look you like. With a little bit of practice you can create different size splatter for your projects.
Enjoy! And don’t forget to stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing a fun tutorial with you using the Sparkling Snowflake Stamp set.
