52 Christmas Card Challenge ~ Using Brads

Good Morning!  This is my card for today's 52 (Christmas Card) Throwdown blog challenge.  This week's challenge is an embellishment challenge using brads.

The small poinsettia stamp I used is from an retired Stampin' Up! stamp set called Perfect Presentation.  There is a small poinsettia stamp in that set with some wording all around the flower.  When I first got this stamp set I cut the wording apart from the poinsettia and I'm so glad I did because now I can quickly stamp this flower image and if I ever want to add the words around the image I can since I mounted the words on another wood block.

So basically to create my card I stamped nine of the flower images and using a hole punch I placed a brad in the center of each flower.  Then I placed the punched out flowers onto my card stock using dimensionals.

My background is embossed using the petals a plenty embossing folder.  I used this embossing folder because I thought it was a perfect match to my stamped flowers.

Be sure to stop over at 52 (Christmas Card) Throwdown  and check out the other DT member's cards!  I hope you have a wonderful day!  Thanks for stopping by!
