Christmas Wishes

Phew! What a Papertrey release last night! I am glad I waited up, since some stamp sets are sold out already!

I made this while waiting for the party to begin~ it's last years Papertrey Christmas papers-Vintage Holiday 2008 (I think that's the name!); Ripe Avocado and Pure Poppy.
But! The card base is actually SU's Real Red in textured; it matches close enough, and I liked the texture for the base. The ink on the SU EF is also Real Red, but the layer under the embossed pointsettias is Papertrey Pure Poppy, so is the satin ribbon! They really are close enough in color to use together!
The pointsettia is from a Prima tin, I just put little dots of liquid pearl on the center. The same dots are in the centers of the flowers on the embossed layer. I punched leaves from Ripe Avocado, and textured them a bit after I sponged Ripe Avocado on the edges. The fern punch is a Martha Stewart one, the ferns are made using Spring Moss.
The ribbon slider was cut with a Nestability die, then stamped with a sentiment from one of Claire's sets- the one with the Gingerbread men all made. Now that I think of it, Claire doesn't have names of the sets on her packaging- I'll have to point that out to her. HEY CLAIRE! You there??
A couple little glittery things on some more ferns, and it's all ready to mail! If I'm lucky, I'll get some cards in the mail on Wednesday- a whole week early, lol!
