Digital Christmas Card

One of my favorite things to use on Christmas cards is poinsettias so when I saw this digital set from Artsystamper Digitals I could not resist buying that Zip file. So with the use of this set I made a card to add to the Artsystamper Digital Challenge #2-Pattern Paper. This card will work for the challenge as not only do you get pattern paper but you also get the lovely poinsettia. I love all of it.



I chose to use the already colored poinsettia as it was so perfect with the beautiful pattern paper. And, I tried to find a green card stock that would work with the same colors and that was what I used for the card base. The sentiment is one from Sparkle N Sprinkle which is a company that is no longer in business. But the font on that sentiment looked so beautiful to me and I thought it the perfect one for this card.

This was my afternoon activity today. I am happy with the way it turned out. I may have to make several with this poinsettia now as not having to color really helped make it go together a lot faster. Although fussy cutting was a bit challenging for me.

Well, I wish all a happy weekend. And, I hope you can get in some crafty fun too. Thanks for all the lovely comments you leave me too.

God bless,
Verna

Beautiful poinsettias and another relatively quick card! With the way my printer uses ink I cannot do the papers or the pre-colored digis. It would be nice sometimes!

This poinsettia card is beautiful. Love the layers of the flowers and also your lovely sentiment.

I have been making a lot of precoloured image cards and also diecut cards, lately. It is easier on me as there is not as much sitting with no colouring taken into account.

I may look up this set as the colours are gorgeous on these flowers!

Thanks for taking part in the October Rudolph Days
Challenge.

Erna, I love your beautiful and classic Christmas cards. We leave this morning for warmer weather and I have my box of completed Christmas cards with me. Yes, they are done, but I am seeing so many beautiful cards like yours, that I may do a few more.

Gorgeous make, Verna! The poinsettias and the background paper are super together. The fussy cutting looks great too.

Well this is one gorgeous pre-coloured image, Verna! Will definitely be checking it out. Such a gorgeous poinsettia and card. I LOVE using precoloured images - they make life so much easier - sometimes I just want to make a card and don't have time to colour. Beautiful card!
