Cricut Christmas/Noel Poinsettia Card

  Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I am back with another Christmas card! The paper is from K&Company Yuletide Die-Cut Cardmaking pad. This gorgeous double-sided paper pad was bought 2 or 3 years ago-one of those after Christmas clearance purchases. I finally convinced myself to cut it! The paper measures 5.5" x 9" and has the die cut shape on one end. Just fold it in half and you have the card! I do have some of the same papers in a 12" x 12" paper pad. 
Inspired by the card design on the front of the paper pad, I used the same pretty papers for my card. I cut the striped paper and layered it on the paisley and added the strip of green patterned paper at the top.

Outside view of the card.
Using Cricut Christmas/Noel cartridge for the images, the poinsettia is cut at 2.5". Pop dots are used to layer the flower and Gold Stickles are used in the center. The phrase Greetings and shadow are cut at 1". Lots of inking!

I am pleased with the way the card looks and may have to use more of this die cut paper.
Hope the card recipient enjoys this!

Thanks for your visits and comments!
