10/12  TUESDAY:   Seasonal Poinsettias and Time to Chill
I chose to do a CAS card using the beautiful poinsettia wreath. I added a flower and green rhinestones for the flower centers. Hope, Peace, and Love were added as well as Baker`s Twine. Basic Grey DP is on the inside and I used a MS Corner Punch and Snowflake Punch on the envelope.
My second card uses the deer from the Time to Chill stamp set which is colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. The background was watercolored by me and I added Ultrafine Glitter to the snow. Distressed, matted in black, and popped it up. I love the old fashioned font of the Merry Christmas greeting. The deer on the envelope is a MS Punch. Inside the card is Basic Grey DP.
Versatile sets which can be easily adapted to anyone`s style whether it be CAS or elaborate!
Thanks for looking an have a wonderful day! Please stop back by tomorrow for more great sets!
Below is a list of talented design team members who you won`t want to miss!
