I designed this cheerful card with a stamp set from Taylored Expressions. The coordinating dies cut out the head and body of the characters separately, which makes them perfect for action wobblers. In the angle shown below you can see the action wobbler from the side. I really tried, but could not get a photo of Santa’s head wobbling.
The background is a cover die from My Favorite Things that I cut out of red card stock and then in laid with white. I embossed the sentiment in white, added a few, green, gem stones for sparkle, and mounted everything onto a bright green card base.
The inside features a reindeer from the same stamp set that I colored with Copic markers, as I had Santa.

I’m fortunate to live by a fabulous scrapbooking store, http://www.joysoflifescrapbooking.com/. They recently started carrying beautiful papers from a Polish company, Mintay. This post features four cards I made with these gorgeous designs from their Christmas collection.
For the first card, I fussy cut a wreath out of one of the papers and foam mounted it onto two more layers of patterned paper and coordinating card stock. I think the plaid paper is my very favorite from the collection. I added a die cut “Merry Christmas” sentiment made from Tim Holtz rose gold metallic card stock, then added small dots of Stickles on the wreath.
My second cards features more fussy cutting, this time of pink and blue poinsettias, pine cones, and greenery. I mounted those onto a panel made of a thin, red, card stock frame with a white, eyelet backing I created from a Heartfelt Creations die. I layered that onto more patterned paper and added a sentiment from Papertrey Ink. Pink gem stones provide the final finishing touches.
The third card is loaded with dimension since I mounted each layer of the die cut poinsettia with foam tape. I careful edged each petal of the flower with warm diamond glitter from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I made the “Season’s Greeting” sentiment out of an Echo Park die and more Tim Holtz metallic card stock, then added a few pearl gemstones for just a bit more sparkle.
My final card was the easiest to make but turned out to be my favorite. I started with a lovely vignette featuring a Nutcracker, which have a special place in my heart because my husband took me to The Nutcracker Ballet on our first date. I used double sided tape to coat the entire thing in warm diamond glitter. Its hard to tell from the picture, but the card has amazing sparkle. All I added was a small die cut “Merry Christmas” sentiment cut from gold metallic card stock.

I made the focal image of this card from a silhouette die from Spellbinders. I cut it three times out of black card stock, layered them together, and then added the same die cut slightly offset in red.
But what really makes it pop is the gorgeous Graphic 45 Christmas Magic paper in the background.
I used a yellow seam-binding ribbon to pick up the colors in the printed paper, and then added a green “Be Merry” layered die cut for the sentiment, that I covered with a layer of wink of stella.
I lined the inside with more beautiful paper from the same collection and a smooth, ivory panel.

I used my trusty Copic markers to carefully color the candy canes, fuzzy cut them and then mounted them with foam tape.
I hand designed the background with red, green, and frosty colors of Elizabeth Crafty Designs ultrafine glitters and three widths of double sided tape. I used the lines on my Tim Holtz craft mat to get the tape straight. The sentiment is another digi image from Power Poppy which I accented with red and white gems from Pretty Pink Posh.
I layered the glittered background onto a mossy, green card base and decorated the inside with pattern paper with a candy cane stripe and a smooth, white panel.

Welcome to my first blog post. I decided to feature a beautiful Christmas card featuring a sparkly, blue poinsettia with lots of dimension. I created the poinsettia with a stamp and die set from Papertrey Ink and two shades of blue ink.
I embossed the leaves and dark blue layers of the bloom with iridescent ice embossing powder for loads of sparkle. I then assembled each layer with foam tape for dimension.
I used silver card stock and a Christmas Wishes die from Creative Expressions to create the sentiment, and mounted it onto a blue and silver panel made with a retired My Favorite Things Die.
I layered all of the elements onto beautiful Ciao Bello printed paper, added some Pretty Pink Posh silver gems for more sparkle, and mounted everything onto a blue and silver card base.
The inside features more coordinating, printed paper and a smooth, white panel. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog! Please subscribe to make sure you don’t miss a single post.
