Poinsettia Joyful Christmas Card

Here's the second card from my Stamp-A-Stack this past Saturday.  This card features the Joyful Christmas stamp set, with a beautiful poinsettia stamp image.  To make this card, I stamped the sentiment and the poinsettia image onto Cherry Cobbler cardstock using the gold metallic Encore stamp pad, sold in Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Catalog.  I couldn't wait to try out the new ink, and I think it looks really pretty on the red paper!  

Next I used Old Olive 1/8" taffeta ribbon to tie a simple knot around the stamped images, and then mounted the Cherry Cobbler onto Whisper White cardstock to make it pop.  I embossed some Old Olive cardstock using the Stripes embossing folder and my Big Shot, and then adhered everything to a base of Crumb Cake cardstock. 

I really like the simplicity and elegance of this card, and it was really easy to make.  I hope you like it too!

Here are the supplies I used to create this card.  All supplies are from Stampin' Up! and available for purchase through my Stampin' Up! Online Store unless otherwise noted:
