FTL: Poinsetties and Doilies

I love the sketches at clean&simple - they manage to be very interesting while staying CAS.  I am working on holiday cards already for a special cardmaking session at church, so I pulled out some doilies from Martha Stewart (actually called "tags") and a beautiful Prima poinsettia.

  • Stamps: Stampin' UP A Cardinal Christmas
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Early Espresso, Papertrey Ink Fresh Snow
  • Accessories: Prima Holiday Poinsettias (in a big silver tin, purchased at Michaels some time ago), Martha Stewart Tags, misc glitter yellow brad


  1. So pretty & festive! I love the flower and the "frost" around the edges. :)

  2. A gorgeous Christmas card - the flower and colours are just perfect.


  3. What a gorgeous Christmas card to grace anyones mantelpiece! I love the touch of glitter to the poinsettia :)

  4. Your CAS style is so refined, Kim! Just gorgeous! Hugs xxaxx

  5. Very pretty Kim, I especially loved the way you inked the edges. :)

  6. This is really pretty, Kim. I haven't played along with the CAS sketches lately, but I've seen some beautiful cards with this sketch. I like your white sponging around the edges and the doily looks wonderful behind your flower panel. Ann

  7. This is gorgeous. I may case it just a little if you don't mind. I will change it a bit as I don't have the "tags" lol. But I just love the idea of using this with a Christmas poinsettia.
