Alternative Colored Christmas Poinsettia
I do love this So Saffron Alternative Colored Christmas Poinsettia. How about you?? The Poinsettia Place Suite has several amazing pieces. I have to say that I really want to NEED to play with the Plush Poinsettia paper. That paper is flocked and white. Soo pretty!! ANYWAY, back to the card.
Taking my colors for this was another story, kinda. The Early Espresso is on the color list. However the So Saffron is not. How did I get to using it?? Well, it is just a lighter version on Bumblebee. Which is on the list. The background color of this sheet really looked like a perfect match. Don’t be afraid to try a lighter version for a softer look.
I will admit however that I did not get the coordinating stamp set for the DSP. But that is the great thing about having so many sets… You can check to see what style you like and add that!! The sentiment actually comes from the Gift Wrapped stamp set (bundle). Perfect, right??
Embellish or Not??
Originally I did not have the Metallic Pearls. Yes, they were an after thought. The pack has both Silver and Gold. I went back and forth. Honestly, you could go either way. Finally, decided on the gold.
This card would be AMAZING with ribbon, but again which one?? I really like how simple it ended up. Plus, I really do love a great alternative card!!
Hugs and Have a Great Day getting Crafty!!
