Here's a simple slimline version of Poinsettia Rub On designs spotlighted on diecut circles.  Accent it with a bright rose-colored  Foil Greeting Tab, Fairy Crystals and Jewels.  Hi, Jean here with a quick design that would also work for holiday thank-you cards with a stamped or diecut greeting.

Cut smooth white cardstock with the 2.25", 2.5" and 3" Circle Basics dies. I keep my Basics dies organized on shower curtain rings from a fabric or home store.  

Cut the Poinsettia Rub Ons - leave a generous border around each design.  Carefully remove the paper liner.  Gently tap the design onto the circles.  Place it between two pieces of printer paper and run it through a diecut machine using the plates you'd use for diecutting.  Carefully remove the frosty plastic liner.

Cut the smoother side of pink textured cardstock with the  2.25" x 7.25" Slim Basic Rectangle Layers die.

Attach the diecuts to a pink slimline card (8-⅝" x 3-⅝").  Trim slightly less than ⅛" from the short ends of a Merry Christmas Foil Greetings Rose (colored) Tab.  Attach the greeting with foamtape.  Greeting Tabs are great for last-minute and/or mass-produced cards.  You'll appreciate the versatile set of 40 tabs - 4 each of 10 typefaces.

Add yellow Bright Jewels to the center of the poinsettia.  Add green Christmas Fairy Crystals for extra sparkle.  Cut a slimline-sized piece of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Poinsettia Rub Ons have a natural watercolored look and are great for gift tags or holiday treat wrappers too.

Thanks for visiting our blog.  Have a very Merry Christmas if you're celebrating on Monday!
