Brushstrokes Flourishing phrases & Embellished Ornaments Handmade Christmas Card Stampin' Up! UK



Can you believe it is Saturday again? The weeks are flying past, and I am starting to think on the designs I will be using for this years Christmas Cards ... I Know, I can hear you groaning from here.
And for this card, I need feedback from you, my faithful followers please?

 The two cards in the photo, differ, and I want to know if you prefer the design with the leaves? or the one without the leaves?

For this design, I wanted to keep it clean, crisp, and simple 

The colour-scheme was kept equally simple, using ink pads from the Brights Colour Collection

Daffodil Delight
Old Olive
& Real Red
With Cherry Cobbler for the Card base 

It does mean I have used three stamp sets, but for me it is worth it
The background uses the Brushstrokes Stamp Set
The Flower & leaves are from the Flourishing Phrases Stamp Set
& the festive sentiment is from the Delicate Ornaments Stamp Set
Embellishment was kept equally simple with Basic Rhinestones for that Festive Twinkle.
