Poinsettia Christmas

Hello and welcome. Not too long until the big day. Still have a few more cards to get made that will be hand delivered.

I always make my brothers a special card for the holiday. This year was a little pushed for time, so made all 3 pretty much the same. The image is a clear Avery Elle one, heat embossed with my favorite Ranger Queen's Gold. Colored - carefully with copics. Flower centers were colored with a Pentel gold slicci pen. These are getting harder to find in my area...this is my favorite gold pen.


- The colored image was die cut with a Gina Marie rectangle. Added some Impression Obsession tiny holly & leaves, which were colored with copics, and then a few sequins.  Pretty simple, and I hope they will like it.

Do please check out the Cards by Friends page if you have time & enjoy some of the lovely cards we've received. Ya'll stay cozy and come back when you can. Hugs & Blessings.

  25. Your brothers will enjoy their cards even if they're the same. You took time to make them and that's what matters. Love the gold embossed poinsettia too and your coloring is amazing. I never heard of a Pentel gold slicci pen, but it clearly works beautifully! Wishing you a wonderful day and good health!

  27. A beautiful card Mary - and your colouring is stunning. Isn't it frustrating when a favourite 'tool' goes off the market - it's just not good enough! :-)
