Debossed Poinsettia

This is a very fast card for Rudolph Days Challenge which is run by Mo over at Scraps of Life by Scrappymo, and is open from 25th to the end of every month.  Stupidly I forgot that this is only a 30 day month so one day less than I was thinking.  I am taking a chance as it was after midnight here in the UK when I finally posted it, but Western Canada is 8 hours behind so I hope that this is OK with Mo. 

I used the Crafters Companion Pretty Poinsettia Embossing Folder which I debossed on to a snippet of light blue card, and then used some silver gilding wax.   I then die cut a Sue Wilson Noel Star die using a snippet of silver mirri card, cutting away the star to leave just the word, and then added the Craft Emotions Snow Crystals but decided to use just the smaller centre part of the largest star and cut away the rest, again using a snippet of silver mirri card to cut the three.  I finished by cutting this piece down slightly and mounted it on to a 7" x 5" white card.

Thank you for looking at my blog today and I'll be back soon.

I am also entering the following challenges:

Pixie's Crafty Workshop - Week 325 where we use our snippets of card and paper etc.
Merry Monday Christms challenge - No. 288 No Stamping.
Sweet Stampin' Challenge - April Anything Christmas Goes.
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.


  1. This is just pure elegance. Love this EF pattern, and it is lovely debossed and distressed with the shading on the pretty blue of the c/s. Adding the slim lettering of the Noel and the tiny golden snowflakes...just so beautiful. I didn't think about the short month either, and had forgotten about the Challenge until I was seeing blogs on about the 26th, and realized Rudy Day had opened! Then I got busy with stuff, and was working fast at the last minute. Your fast card turned out great!!! TFS & Hugs

  2. Love your pretty card! The debossing is a nice change from embossing & looks amazing with the silver added on top.

  3. Stunning, debossing makes it so different, I'm loving it, thanks for joining us at April's Rudolph Days Challenge, Luv Sam

  4. Beautiful card Pat - so elegant! I'm sure I have that EF, as yet unused, it's so pretty and the die cuts are gorgeous as well.
