Vintage is not my usual style. So, I was initially a little uncertain as to what I was going to do. And, then I saw that wonderfully vintage-feel paper in the Stampin' Up! holiday catalog. At least that's my gonna-have-to-buy-that-paper story... and I'm sticking to it! :)
Thanks go to friend and CIE teamie Annie for suggesting that I make this paper-pieced, fussy-cut poinsettia the real star of the show by placing it in the center of the card. Thanks to a friend from work for the gift of some wonderful card-making items, including this perfect sentiment. And, thanks to Jennifer McGuire for the tip to outline fussy-cut images in black.
We had so many wonderful cards linked up to our last CIE challenge. We hope y'all will come back and join us for our new challenge. Remember CIE cards need to fit into A2 standard envelopes and be flat/light enough to mail with one forever USPS stamp.
There's a holiday-themed challenge going on at Words 2 Scrap By too! This month, we are using the words from 'Twas the Night before Christmas as our challenge inspiration. And, there's a $10 gift certificate to My Favorite Things up for grabs! How's that for any early stocking stuffer?!
Have a great week! And, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
