Merry Monday #5

Wow, I have made more cards since starting my blogs, than in the last year!  I’m shocked!! Especially since my grandson has now just started to crawl.  I have to watch him every minute! lol  He has also decided he no longer needs naps!  Good thing Grandpa loves to help out! 🙂

The Paper Players sponsors a Challenge called Merry Monday. The goal is to make a Christmas card every week:)

Here is my card for this week:)

Hmmm, it looks a little crocked:(  It actually looks fine on my desk.  Isn’t that flower gorgeous?! I got my inspiration from Lynn Pratt. Click on her name and go see the beautiful card she made! Lynn tells about how she made the Poinsettia:)

It’s funny, my supply list seemed really short, and then I got to the “Misc”.  Overall not a hard card to make.  I did use Very Vanilla Craft Ink.  You don’t emboss it, it dries very nicely.  Also the set “Come to Bethlehem”, I just used the Merry Christmas stamp.

Supply list, all Stampin’ Up!

Stamps-French Foliage, Come to Bethlehem

Ink-Craft Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler

Paper-Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke

Misc-Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder, Basic Pearls, Crochet trim Chantilly 1/2, Modern Label Punch, Stampin Dimensionals

I’m glad you stopped by today:)  I hope you like my card:)

  1. Beautiful! I always love poinsettias and this is a very pretty one. And what a great embossed background! Gosh, you’ll be way ahead of me on Christmas cards if you keep this up. Actually you’ll be way ahead on cards although I am having Dawn and Monica over on Monday so hopefully I will be very productive.

    Janet, that is really a pretty card and I dso love the poinseitta. Great idea to make one a week and come next December you’ll be ready. But since all will be different you will have to decide who gets what.
    Glad you are finding time for making cards.


  3. This is a beautiful poinsettia and I love the embossing and lace! We keep our grandsons, one 4 yrs. and one 7 mo.. I hate to think there will be less time to stamp when Jack starts crawling. Oh, my!


  4. Your poinsettia is lovely. this is a very pretty card.


  5. Beautiful card – I love all those pearls on the poinsetta.
