Christmas Magic!

With the stormy windy, rainy weather we have been having, I decided the best place for me was my craft room, it is time to get started on my Christmas cards.  Here is the card I came up with today.

I cut the Poinsettia from Anna's Holiday Home Decor cartridge using Cricut Design Space and my Cricut Explore.  I cut the flower at 3.5".

For my card base I started with white card stock cut to 5 1/2" X 8 1/2" and scored and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" landscape card base.  I cut a black mat at 4" X 5 1/4" and then my patterned paper at 3 7/8" X 5 1/8".  I adhered all the card layers together to make my card.  I then folded the flower petals on the score lines and glued them together in the center.  For the flower center I used some Citrus Flower Soft and added it to the piece that was cut out for the center.  It gives the flower center a bit more dimension.  I added the leaves that were cut out with the flower and adhered the whole thing to my card front using a couple of glue dots.

To finish the card using the Martha Stewart Pine Branch punch I punched a bunch of the little pine branches and hot glued them all around the back of the flower.  Finally I stamped the sentiment Christmas Magic using some Memento Tuxedo black ink.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. Gorgeous, simply gorgeous! I love this poinsettia! The Martha Stewart pine boughs are a perfect layer for the beautiful flower to sit on. The flower soft really is dimensional in the center. Perfect choice!
