Celebrate the Season for CAS Christmas

Hello and Welcome
The new challenge over at
and sure to be a big hit with a 
favourite Christmas Flower - Poinsettia
to take pride of place for this month.
Check it out Here
Over at Little Red Wagon their Challenge is
Christmas in July so this card will be in both Galleries.

This was the easiest and quickest Christmas card
I have ever made so it's going to be mass produced
for later in the year to help me out 'cause
I am so far behind and I know I will 
need them in a hurry.
Here is how I made it.
That beautiful poinsettia is the
I saw Shery - the Owner make a card with this flower
and she stamped the back of the stamp then turned it around
and stamped the correct side off centre a bit and that is
what I have done here. Doesn't it look fabulous!
I used Memento Sweet Plum on the background and
Eldenberry on the main image.
Added some WOS Gold/Green
to the centre berries and Nuvo Glitter Gloss
on the front flowers.
Added my sentiment from
Cut this from a stitched die and attached to
SU Rich Razzleberry card stock.
I refrained from added gems or glossy accents
on those berries and think I did the right thing.

AAA Cards are also celebrating
Christmas in July Here so joining in
their Gallery also.

# Update - and how could I not add this card to the
Monochrome Magic with the 
Twist of Purple!
Monochrome as well. Yay!
I do love 'Purple'

Thanks for dropping in.
Love reading your Comments.

Beautiful poinsettia, I love the detail of the leaves and your colour is perfect. What a great idea using the back of the stamp to give a solid colour.
thanks for joining us at CAS Christmas.

Pretty plum poinsettias, Ina! Love non-traditional colours. And what a fun technique stamping the back of the stamp. But I must say, I’ve only seen that done with symmetrical stamps. I like the whimsical look of using a non-symmetrical one. Thank you for joining us at CAS Christmas Poinsettia challenge. x

I see what you mean about an easy card! That's such a cool idea to stamp the back of the stamp image first, gives such an artistic effect without having to go to much trouble. Might have to try this myself.....And your colour combo is so beautiful, love to see a non-traditional Christmas colour. So glad you shared this with us at The Flower Challenge!!
