One More Christmas in July

Euphorbia pulcherrima, otherwise known as pointsettia, is one of the beautiful flowers abundant at Christmastime. Today I took one of the pointsettia flower stamps from the Chapel Road Art Stamps Pointsettia Plate to create the focal image of my card. I embossed it with white ink and used the neutral shadows technique from the Feb/Mar 2011 TJ newsletter. I love how the image appears through the shadows. I used a Spellbinders die to create the frame. The background panel is stamped with the pine corners from the holly plate and then embossed using the snowflake frame embossing folder from Cuttlebug. And once more, Merry Christmas to all, in July.
