Details, details - the new Poinsettia Blooms set includes 3 deeply-embossed blossoms, 2 centers and 2 delicate tendrils - everything you need for a classic holiday card.  The Single Pinpoint Frame highlights these details and adds a bit of dimension.   Hi - Jean Okimoto here with another simple design that would work in many colors - try it in red, fuchsia or gold mirror cardstock too.

Cut one large, two medium and three small flowers from light pink mirror cardstock.  Leave the diecuts in the die each time and dry-emboss them using the rubber embossing mat and other plates required for your machine.  Here's the sequence I used on my Platinum - platform, diecuts in the die (cutting-edge-up), rubber embossing mat, purple embossing plate.  

Attach Scor-Tape behind chartreuse cardstock and cut two sets of the centers.  Cut two sets of tendrils from green cardstock.

Cut white cardstock with the 3-1/2" x 2-1/4" Basic Rectangle die.  Cut the rectangle again with the Pinpoint Single Frame.  Cut Pinpoint Single Frame again from green cardstock - save the delicate frame for another project, we're using just the rectangle here.

Stamp the outside greeting - from the new Open Studio Merry Christmas Sentiments Clear Stamp Set - on a top-folded white A-2 card with Imagine Crafts Golden Glitz Delicata. Stamp "FROM ALL OF US" inside the card.  Dry the ink.

I love how easy it is to mix and match portions of the greeting with a quick (but careful!) snip of detail scissors.  The Open Studio greetings stamp sets are great for creating the perfect message for your holiday cards.  Snip them apart, then combine, stack or stair-step them to greet the season.

Assemble the card and add gold gem stickers.
