It's time to get those Christmas cards started...

What fun to take a piece of watercolor paper and stamp the Stampendous"poinsettia background" using Versamark ink, then running it through gold embossing powder and heating it to glisten.
I used Distress inks to color the flowers and pull the color with my watercolor brush.
I trimmed that piece down and layered it to red card stock, then onto a white linen card stock.
To finish I stamped the verse from MFT "LJD trim the tree" using the Versmark pad and gold embossing powder on another piece of white linen card stock.
I trimmed that into a flag strip and applied it to the front of the card.

What a gorgeous festive card and I love how you used traditional colours but came up with a stylish, contemporary design.
Thanks for sharing with us at Happy Little Stampers.
