Simple Merry Christmas

Yesterday in the mail, I received some really cool Cuttlebug folders that I ordered from Stamper's Dream. I got the Frills set and the Just My Type set. I think I got the last Just My Type set, though. :( Sorry! What's so cool about these folders is that they are made up of 5 skinny border folders! So, imagine the normal A2 Cuttlebug embossing folder, but instead of the whole folder measuring 4.25x5.5, there are 5 skinny folders
that together make up that size. I hope that makes sense. I used one of the "strip" folders for the border on this card. After I embossed the edge, I cut around the embossing to give that nice finished edge.
The stamps are Poinsettia Christmas from Verve. I just love these poinsettias with white and gold. It's so clean and simple. I used a metallic marker to edge the focal piece in gold. I think cutting out the one poinsettia took the most time on this card. Thanks for stopping by and I hope your weekend is off to a great start! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Poinsettia Christmas (Verve Stamps); Paper- white (Georgia-Pacific); Ink- Onyx Black (Versafine), Red Riding Hood (SU), Ripe Avocado (PTI); Accessories- Frills Cuttlebug folder (Provocraft), gold metallic marker (Rose Art), gold ribbon (PTI), gold stickles; Finished card measures 5.5"x4.25"

This is gorgeous, Charmaine! I really need to embrace the white space more, but I feel like I don't do that great of a job of it. But this....this is so beautiful! I LOVE it!

Very elegant! I love those poinsettias--they aren't always so cute, but these are. Nice edging at the bottom too :)
