Hello everyone!  We are a week away from Christmas officially, are you ready?  I have most of my goodies baked and safely tucked away, the presents are bought, wrapped and under the tree.  Now onto planning the Christmas Eve and Christmas day menus. I always love this time of year with all of the fun festivities!

Today I have another Christmas card to share with you.  This card is probably my favorite! Even thought these colors are not really traditional, I love the soft elegance from this card.

#CTMHSilver&Gold - Gold Poinsettias- Christmas Card -Inspired Paper Crafts - Watermarked

I started this card off with a 5″ x 7″ base, using Expresso cardstock.  I added some Bashful cardstock to the layers, which is our Color of the Year.

The layers of patterned paper for the base and flowers are all from the Silver & Gold Collection found here.

The poinsettias for this card were cut from the Cricut Flower Market Cartridge found here.

After cutting all of the layers for the flowers, I gently curved the tips of each petal around a pencil to give the layers some shape. I also added a pearl brad to the center of each poinsettia.
