I had made the quilled elements at my last quilling session with the gals and thought I'd better use them BIG GRIN. I love Christmas, Easter and orchid cactus. They're just so beautiful and always put a smile on my face. I did a bit of artistic license with my quilled flowers... but c'est la vie.

I used all the greens from Color Burst and Brushos to create the background for my leaves. Fun...

I'm using an A Way With Words die from Elizabeth Craft Designs "Merry Christmas" 2 pce set also available on Quietfire Design HERE

And I'm using one of the newer quote stamps from Quietfire Design "In The Midst Of Winter..."

Click on any card image to see all the details and descriptions etc. Enjoy

PS further down this post there are 2 FREE black and white images of the leaves I created. Feel free to copy them and cut with your electronic cutter.

Interesting design using the "Christmas" cactus and quilling for your Christmas card. Your cactus flowers remind me of my deceased Mother's flowers that she always had at Christmas time.

Love your insert, it is so pretty, simple and gorgeous. It could be a card all by itself. Great work.

Yogi, thank you for widening my view. I have only thought of Xmas trees and poinsettias for Xmas, but how perfect your Christmas cactus is. And perfect not only in thought but execution.

Thank you for sharing your card and all your steps!
