Let It Snow…

Not really, but today’s Christmas card does look like snow.  I know today was supposed to be a video on the fall wreath pieces, but I swear I can’t get to my video station.  Look at this mess…


Sweetums and I started this project this past weekend by painting the stairway up to my studio and just kept going.  It has needed to be done for quite some time.  There just never seems to be the “right” time.  We are about 2/3 the way to completion.  Maybe I’ll do a little tour once everything is back in place.

But I do have lots of samples made up to show you.  Here’s today’s post…


Doesn’t this new embossing folder look like falling snow?  Let’s look at the Stuff ‘N Digits


  • Paper:  Heavy Whisper White, Old Olive, Real Red and Crushed Curry cardstock
  • Ink:  None yet (I’ll probably add a sentiment inside later)
  • Stamps:  None!
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  Festive Flower Builder Punch (pg. 31 Holiday Catalog, #139682), Basic Rhinestones, Softly Falling Embossing Folder


  • The Heavy Whisper White base card is 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
  • The Real Red layer is 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″.  Add to card front with adhesive
  • The second Whisper White layer is 4″ x 5 1/4″, embossed with Softly Falling embossing folder and added to the Real Red layer with adhesive.
  • Real Red, Old Olive and Crushed Curry cardstock was used with the Festive Flower Builder Punch.  I used hot glue because I don’t have patience to wait for Tomboy to dry and also with hot glue you get more dimension and a stronger flower.  There will be a video show how to make this poinsettia and several other flowers with this punch this week.  (Hope I can find it)
  • The poinsettia was added to the card front with hot glue.
  • This card could be mailed in a bubble envelope or you could make an envelope box with the envelope board…or you could hand deliver it too!

I’ve got to get back to purging and cleaning and painting.  Hope to get this project done this week.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…


Right now I feel like laughing hysterically…

Maybe when I get inky again…I’ll be HaPpY!



  1. Thank you so much, Billie, for taking time from your project to share this beautiful poinsettia card with us. I love the flower but also the EF, which just makes the card pop!! Good luck with your studio.
