First Christmas notecard with envelope

Wow.... It is always fun to sit down and make the first Christmas card of the season. With the new SU Holiday catalog, And seeing the cards with the "Reason of Being" I got in the mood to pull out an older SU poinsettia stamp...."Wondercolor Winter." This was also my first time to make a square card, 4.5 x 4.5. With the new envelope board, any size card is possible. This card would make a great notecard on a gift or a thank you note after Christmas. It is hard to see in the photo, but the poinsettia is positioned on top of lace circle.... The Hero Arts stamp, "Starburst Lace." The stamp is embossed in white on top of vanilla paper. The poinsettia is embossed with Cherry Cobbler embossing powder on vanilla paper. Gold gemstones were used in the middle of the poinsettia. The beautiful little "believe" statement is from the SU "Good Greetings" stamp set. I sure hope SU comes out with more sayings using that font and size. I love those stamps. I love the potential of the envelope board. Note the pretty little poinsettia on the corner of the envelope.

  1. Beautiful fussy cutting. I love the mix of vanilla with white. And you're right about that font. Let's hope SU produces more sentiments in that font.
