Christmas Card Club Challenge #8 Poinsettia/Christmas Greenery

Hi Crafters,

Two weeks have passed by so quickly and I'm here again to share my cards for the Christmas Card Club.
Mary has given us Poinsettias or Christmas Greenery for our theme.



I've created two very different cards this time.
The top one is using a Craft Creations decoupage sheet and some beautiful tartan paper.
The second card uses a Christmas embossing folder from Apple Blossom and TH Tattered Poinsettia Die cut and embossed using pearlescent card which really makes the embossing stand out. I finished off the poinsettia with a Creative Expressions Dazzler.

Challenges I'd like to enter:


Take a peek at the other ladies cards in our group by clicking on the links in the tab at the top of my blog. They always have some fabulous Christmas inspiration on their blogs.
I hope you've had a great weekend, the weather has been a little brighter which always helps.
See you soon,



Lorraine
xXx

Two beauties Lorraine, love the decoupage card with the tartan paper, it's lovely and traditional. The purple and green poinsettia is beautifully vibrant and modern.

Tartan and poinsettias seem to go together so well. But I just love the purple and green one! That embossing folder is great. Christine x

Two gorgeous cards Lorraine - love the colours on that second one! Big hugs rachel x

Sarah said...

These are beautiful Lorraine, love the rich purple xx

MaryH said...

WOW! I love both of these, and they are so totally different in style from each other. While I love the traditional reds & greens, with the lush basket of poinsettias displayed against that lovely tartan, the purple & green just took my breath away. Love the non-traditional colors of that gorgeous poinsettia, and the swirl design of purple green and white is just beautiful. Well done, indeed, on this challenge! TFS & Hugs

Anne said...

oooh these are lovely and certainly very different from each other.
It's a close call, but I'm a fan of embossing so the bottom would have to be my favourite and I like the non traditional colours for a change

Two wonderful cards, Lorraine. The first is such a pretty decoupage image. I have made up this one a long time ago. I loved it then and still do. I never knew where the papers were from as I bought them at a garage sale...so thanks for the knowledge...

The second one is stunning Love the embossing folders you chose and the non traditional colours are wonderful!

Rita said...

Beautiful cards Lorraine. Hugs Rita xxx

Tracy said...

Wow these really are totally different yet perfect in their own category. The decoupage images are so beautiful and the embossing is so much fun with all the texture.

Zoe Tant said...

Love the traditional red and green and I'm liking the not so traditional too! What a clever combination. TFS Zoe x
