Stampin' Up! Poinsettia Petals Warm Wishes Christmas Card - Inkin' Krew Blog Hop

This month's Inkin' Krew Blog hop theme is “Christmas or Happy Holidays” so I finally took the plunge and used my very neglected Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set. It is a gorgeous stamp set with amazing coordinating dies that include embossing dies (I didn't use those yet, but now it's time to create more cards with this bundle!).


This card was very easy to create and believe it or not, it didn't take long to complete. I water colored the flower and leaves and adhered them to a water washed background.
