Pretty Poinsettia – Card

Hi everyone

Thank you everyone for your visits and for the lovely comments on my last post.

Another quick post to share a card made with Crafty Individuals new stamps. I have a few cards made up using the new stamps so I wanted to post them asap as we are only a few weeks away from Christmas now!  My goodness where has this year gone.

You know I had a big birthday this year and promised myself I would try and get a lot of things done that I had been meaning to do for years.  It started well and a lot of plans are now in place but where does the time go.

Anyway, back to card making.


The backing piece is a piece of card which I embossed using a folder and then edged with green distress ink.
For the circle embellishment, I stamped the Vintage Ads image once and then placed nesting circle dies on it and cut them out. I then just layered the circles up using foam pads.
I stamped the butterfly and the poinsettia onto white card and then cut them out.
The card was made up as seen.

Crafty Individuals stamps used:

Vintage Ads CI 461
Festively Ornamental (Poinsettia)  CI 465
Butterfly Pairs CI 437

Just to share, Jean has a giveaway on the Crafty Individuals blog at the moment. To see full details please click here.

Thank you for looking

Take care,

    Wonderfully designed, Florence. I like the way you can take a back of a card and emboss it making it a perfect artistic background. How do you keep all of your equipment organized?

    Blessings and hope you are superb!

      Thank you Marianne. Emmm! My craft room is in chaos! Normally it looks like a crime scene lol! I do have to keep everything in large plastic boxes/bins with lids on because of the dust especially in the summer. I am really lucky I have a large craft room with wall to wall racking that I can store boxes on. I have three tables in it. One main work table, one for sewing and one for all of the little gadgets like die cutting, the binding machine etc. I look at some of the craft rooms on the internet and often wonder how people keep them so tidy!! Maybe I am just messy 🙂
      Take care, Hugs Flo xx

    I love what you did with the circles. I think I need that vintage ads stamp too now! Also, was it you that mentioned months ago that you wanted a wellie die? I saw one online this week by Paper Smooches. Might be a bit too chunky, I am not sure but thought I would mention it.

      Thank you so much Valory. You are so kind. I have to confess that the layering up in this arrangement is a take on an old decoupage idea. I was quite pleased it worked out because I only used on stamped image.
      Take care, Flo xx
