MM161, OLCCC11 - Merry Christmas


This is my card for two 'other' Christmas challenges, Merry Monday and One-Layer Christmas Card Challenge. My Muse: ChristmasVisions card will be posted here later in the week.

 

I stamped an old Impress Rubber Stamps poinsettia down the full left side of the card (front and back) before I scored and folded it. I used Real Red ink.

I used a couple of cut-up sentiments to create this one - the Merry is from Papertrey and the Christmas is from Gina K. Finally, I cut tiny dots out of Champagne shimmer paper using a die from MFT's Blueprints 25 for the poinsettia centres.

I love that you die cut the teeny poinsettia centres. No Stickles for you! ;) And this is a great poinsettia image, too, especially in the real red. Very nice!

Graphic beauty and perfectly executed. And, is there another one layer challenge out there? I guess I must be living under a rock.
