Rustic Poinsettia Christmas

 Hello & Welcome!

Today I'm featuring a card which was sent to a blogging friend and now that I know she has received it I'm going to show the rest of you.

Now I must confess this card is a "case" of a card I saw in an old stamping magazine. - I kept a lot of the Paper Crafts magazines (how I miss them) and from time to time I get them out for inspiration.  Here is a picture of the card from the magazine:

Kimberly Crawford use to have a stamping blog (https://kimberly-crawford.blogspot.com/) but is no longer posting cards as she has now become a surface pattern designer.  I wanted to give her credit though for the card idea.

So for my card I used the following:
Poinsettia Die - Waffle Flower
Holly Leaf Die - Momenta
White, Green and Red felt
Background Stamp: Retired SU Plaid
Burlap Card Stock: DCWV (Die Cuts With a View)
Card Stock: Crumb Cake - SU
Ink: Real Red - SU
Sentiment: Amuse Studio - Essential Sentiments

This was a fun card to create but I will say that in order to get the felt to cut I had to use a shim and run it through the machine and back several times before it cut completely through the felt.

Have a great day & Happy Stamping!


  1. i like yurs better than the magazine, the paper print is beautiful

  2. Oh this one is fabulous. I love the idea of the burlap.

  3. I must say, being the blessed recipient, it's even more GORGEOUS in real life -- the felt is amazing, and the colors stand out so prettily on the kraft. I love it, Ida!!!

  4. I love your layers of patterns and textures!

  5. Ohhh, I love this one too! Maybe even more... I can't decide, but I do love the soft touch and rustic look of this.

  6. These are so elegant and classy!
