A Pretty Poinsettia for Christmas Craft Creations

 I have some exciting news for you today.
I have joined the Talented Team at

We have a monthly themed Christmas Challenge and
I was so excited when I saw what the August Theme was as I
love making Non Traditional Coloured Christmas Cards and
a favourite of mine  is kraft as you can add any colour choice.

I decided to use some patterned metallic card stock -
it's not a white white because of the sheen.
I got out my favourite Spellbinders Poinsettia dies
and cut several for layering.
Background dies are from Tim's Mini Holiday Greens
and Memory Box Quinn Flourish.
The texture plate is embossed instead of die cut.
Added Lawn Fawn Hemp Cord behind the flourish.
Of course you have to have some snowy
pearl white splatters which break the plain background.
Sentiment die is from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
Finished with some pearl coloured gems
to the flower centres.
Pop over and see how my Team Mates
chose to use Non Traditional Colours on their
Christmas creations.
Why not join in with yours.
It's good to get those Christmas cards in the ready!
Thanks for dropping in.
Love reading your kind comments too.

The kraft with the pretty poinsettia looks amazing Ina x. Loving the 'embossed' background and the layering of the dies, along with the snowy splats. A beautiful non traditional card Ina x.

Again, this is an elegant card. I love seeing inspiration in non-traditional Christmas colors. The background if really cool with the embossed design and the splatters. The picture on my screen looked green, which I also love, but I could visualize craft as well.

The Spellbinder poinsettia is my favorite one. It always gets quite a workout at Christmas time. Love the craft and white together and how you have added so much texture and dimension.
