Greetings of the Seasons

Today I'm going to show you the card I made for our holidays cards - I send out cards to lots of hubby's contacts so they can't be too cute and sweet, which is what I make most of the year!

My wonderful friend Gloria showed me the Tim Holtz Alterations Tattered Poinsettia  die, then she showed me the paper & several dollars later I left the store with my master plan.

The poinsettia is cut with 2 different dp's (sorry I didn't write down the dp - it was 12x12 for a change so I don't have a package).  I then inked the petals with distress inks in peeled paint and a mixture of festive berries and barn door.  On the centres of the flowers I added some crystal stickler.

The Olive cs is embossed with cuttlebugs modern wallpaper embossing folder, which I inked with tea dye distress ink.

The sentiment Greetings of the Season is from Stamping Bella and was perfect for the card.  I stamped the sentiment on black cs with versamark ink then used copper embossing powder.  Clean and simple and not too thick to mail!!

Don't forget to play along with this weeks Bellariffic Fridays challenge this awesome sketch.

Email your card to Em by Thursday evening to be included on Friday and you could win some bella bucks!!

Thanks for stopping by,
