Hello friends! Well I just realized that I didn't blog about my Wednesday project for Heartfelt Creations. Sorry about that! If you want to know the truth, I didn't even go into my crafty room yesterday and it was kinda nice. Sometimes you just need a day for yourself, don't you? Well my project for Heartfelt Creations is another Christmas card. This card would be super easy to mass produce (with or without the flower) using the wonderful card panels from the Celebrate the Season collection. If you don't mind paying extra postage and doing a little extra work, you can add the flower. For my cards this year, I will probably not include the flower....I am cheap like that! LOL
Remember my tip about saving the extra flowers that you cut? Well here is one of those flowers. I pulled out the little baggy full of different sized poinsettias and assembled this flower in just a minute. But I truly think this would be a very pretty card with just the ribbon. Here is a closer look......
