Spotlight on Christmas

Happy Saturday everyone! I have been home from work for the holiday and have spent most of my time running errands for which I have little to no time for during the regular work week. I am now working at cleaning the house which leads me here to talk about stamping instead. :)

This is the fourth card in the Riding Hood Red(RHR) and Kiwi Kiss Christmas card series. Click on the image to see the card up close.
This card is a Kiwi Kiss card base with a layer of Whisper White and the Kiwi print from the Bella Rose DSP pack. I think I could easily use paper from that pack for every project. The rectangle layers are RHR cardstock and RHR Designer Series Paper. There is a line of small holes pierced around the entire edge of the card for added texture and a slip of Kiwi Kiss Satin Ribbon was added to the front of the card before adhering the matted papers to the card base.
The focal image is quite fun for this card. Stamp the poinsettia from the Spotlight on Christmas stamp set twice - once in RHR and once in Kiwi Kiss. Use the 5-Petal Punch to punch out the flowers. Stampin' Up punches fit many of our stamp sets so we don't have to hand trim everything. Anyway, clip off two petals from the Kiwi flower to use as leaves. Adhere these to the back of the RHR poinsettia with mini glue dots or your other favorite adhesive. Add brads to the center of the flower for embellishment. Pop up the finished flower on two circles punched from RHR and Kiwi Kiss cardstock using the 1-3/4 inch and 1-3/8 inch Circle Punches.
Stamp your favorite Christmas sentiment inside the card and your name on the back and you are finished. Thanks for visiting my blog and Happy Stampin'! EdieB

Love them ALL, Edie! But, this is my favorite! You always add a ton of detail, but never lose that crisp, clean quality I love in your cards. Beautiful!

See you in a couple of weeks!
