Hey everyone! It's Farhana and I'm back for another Digital Wednesday post to inspire you to create using digital images! As I was making these cards, I realized that most of you will be done making your holiday cards, so I changed up the sentiments to show you that you can stretch your holiday stamps! I used the Sketched Christmas Flower & Poinsettia Row Digital Stamps to make a pair of card that you can share even after the holidays have passed, but its still winter! 


I loved both the images in the card and decided to make two sizes of cards to use them both!

For the slimline card, I sized the poinsettia row to fit the front of a 3.5 x 8.5 slim line card front. I printed it out on kraft paper, colored it in using copic markers (R89, R59, R39, R29). I trimmed the panel using a stitched die, and backed it with a sheet of green paper before adhering it to a slimline card base. I wanted to make the sentiment pop so used some letter dies to cut out the word 'Thanks' from gold glitter paper, you can also use an electronic cutting machine to cut out a word of your choice.

For my second card, I used the individual poinsettia images, coloring them with the same copic combination. I wanted to add some depth to the card and added a cover die cut, before finishing of the card with a thinking of you phrase die and some sequins.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope that you have a great holiday season! Stay home and stay safe :)

  1. These cards are beautiful!
    I love poinsettias! I used to read
    The Legend of the Poinsettia, by
    Tomie de Paola to my kids when
    they were young. It’s a sweet story
    about a young girl’s gift of poinsettias.
