Silhouette Cameo Poinsettia

Hello Friends,

I stayed up late last night finishing this card...........


I actually started it after seeing this lovely card made by Linda Suarez in the on-line gallery of the Holiday Card Workshop on-line class (see side bar for details).

I was definitely missing using my Silhouette Cameo and decided to cut out the shape of this Poinsettia.  To do this I download some flower petals from the Silhouette on-line store and manipulated one of the petals to look more like what I wanted.  I then replicated the petal five times and fiddled about with them until I was happy with how they looked before cutting them out.

I had a real problem finishing the card as I seem to have lost the Stampin' Up stamp set that goes with my tiny little jewellery punch.  I had visions of stamping the little word "merry", punching it and tying it on one of the loops at the bottom, but it's nowhere to be found :( !

In the end I finished my card with a little metal heart that says "made with love" on it, which is pretty cute.

Right I'm off to search for that missing stamp set!

Enjoy your day and I hope you find some time to craft.
