Pinterest and Tim Holtz Inspired Christmas Card


There is a musical poinsettia card being pinned all over Pinterest land and I was inspired by that card- and by Tim Holtz- to make this card. The fun "Joy to the World" stamp is by Tim Holtz as well as the poinsettia dies used. I embossed the front piece with an embossing folder by Darice. I die cut the layers of poinsettia out of a kraft musical dp, then sponged on distress inks (also by Tim Holtz for Ranger.) I curled the pieces with a bone folder and attached with mounting tape to raise each layer. The white top piece was also attached with mounting tape for dimension.

I am entering this card in the We Do Doobadoo Christmas challenge and the Anything Goes challenge at Vandicrafts Artistry Challenge.
