This months card swap at Red Letter was "winter holidays". I knew I wanted to use a poinsettia on my card. Originally I was gonna stamp one and emboss it in gold and cut and stack the different layers. But, my poinsettia stamp was too small for what I wanted to do. So, I decided to punch one out. Also, originally I had some golden yellow paper with sheet music print on it that I was gonna use as background paper...but ended up not liking how the poinsettia looked against it. So, needless to say, originally I had planned a fancier card but in the end it became a clean and simple poinsettia card.
