With this card I was going for quick and simple. I achieved that with the solid B&T background, lace and sentiment, but when it came to the Poinsettia, I failed. It might be fairly easy to make (thanks to the Cricut) but it is not quick as the scoring of all those petals takes time. The inside was fairly simple until I decided it needed a little bit more and Masked the Merry Christmas from the wisemen from the Vintage Christmas set. I masked out the Merry Christmas by putting tape over the part I wanted removed from the image, then inked up my image, once it was all inked I removed the tape and stamped the image. The tape prevented the ink from covering the unwanted parts and therefore it didn't appear when i stamped it.
At the rate I am going I will not have a batch of matching Christmas cards done in time to give out for Christmas, but with as many samples as I have made I should have enough ready to give everyone their own unique card, which might be the way I go anyhow. Check back next week to see another sample for my Christmas cards.
