Poinsettia JOY

Today's design team project for the Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge was a fun one to make and I enjoyed finally doing a Christmas Eclipse Card.

After stamping and then coloring the image with colored pencils, I used an alphabet die set from Spellbinders and popped up the letters with some skinny foam strips from Stampin' Up!

Subtle, but sophisticated with the white on white horizontal striped embossed least I happen to think so, lol. 

Until next time~

  2. Beautiful CAS! That holly leaf is one of my favorite stamp images from Red Rubber Designs!

  3. What a great eclipse card Kathy - it reminds me of those visual illusions where the eye doesn't see it at first and then keeps swapping to and fro! Your elegant red bow is a perfect finishing touch.

  4. This is so wonderful, Kathy. I love the detail in the holly leaves, and i just LOVE the hidden inlaid word. Beautifully done!

  5. Beautifully CAS and a fabulous holly image. Love how you've done the eclipse too xx

  6. What a beautiful Christmas card. And he has a wonderful surprise - JOY sentiment from the base! WoW, a unique card!

  7. Lovely card! I’m sure these eclipse cards used to be called something else, when I made one a few years ago!

  8. I didn't know what eclipse card meant until I saw the close up, Kathy. The sentiment is hidden in the holly leaves that are beautifully colored.
