This is a side fold 4.25"w x 5"h white card.
I'm using one of the newest Xmas stamps from Quietfire Design
I die cut one of the leaves from Tim's "Holly Branch" from mat board to use as a shape to create my outline. The cut and pasted various greens and red strips. Most are from my hand decorated paper that I had cut into strips a while back.
I stamped the poinsettia flower (Local King Rubber) using Distress "Antique Linen" and a touch "Festive Berry". I wanted a subdued image.
Stamped the quote on white cardstock and die cut with Spellbinders Scalloped Oval set. Sponged some of the red around the edges. Die cut a second scalloped oval and used it as a stencil to outline the shape using a red Zig Writer.
As a final touch, used Rangers white enamel accents to create faux stitching around the edge.
