Christmas Blessings

Since this stamp is so delicate, it's a real challenge to present it in a way that keeps it simple but not dull.

For this card, I used gold embossing for the image and shaded the poinsettia with one ordinary red Crayola colored pencil. I colored each petal lightly, then darkened just the inner parts of the leaves to give it depth.

For added interest, I cut 1/2" off the side of the green cs and attached a strip of red that was punched with a Fiskars edge punch.  Then I wrapped the white cs with red metallic cord and mounted it on red cs with dimensionals and attached it to the card with ds tape.  Three tiny red gems were added for the final touch.

We think along the same lines, Doris. This is one of the Christmas sets that's on my shortlist. This is just as pretty as I thought it would be!
