Video: Candy Striped Poinsettias!

Today I am sharing how to make some beautiful Christmas card in no time with my bestselling Festive Frame set, back in stock!  I demonstrate a fun direct to stamp technique for making striped poinsettias in the frame with a bold image from my coordinating Pressed Flowers set. Please enjoy! I Watch to the end for a different layout, and let me know which you prefer in the comment section below.

I apologize for a little clumsiness this week, I got a deep cut in my finger* but didn't want to skip creating a video for you! Makin' it work!

  1. Squeeeel! I did not realize the Pressed Flowers poinsettia matched the Festive Frame. I love how you did this and will be using the Festive Frame for even more cards this year with this technique. The candy striped poinsettias look so amazing and life like. Both versions are beautiful but I kind of lean toward the portrait version. Thanks so much for the AWESOME inspiration!!!!

  2. Another beautiful card, Melanie. I have this set and can't wait to make some cards using this set. What's great is that they're quick to put together, so it takes less time...something I don't have much of this time of year. I do like both orientations...another thing I really like about the frame. Thank you for the inspiration, and I hope your finger heals quickly. :-)

  3. Beautiful color combo and I like both cards....I would make both designs so that I could use different words for different folks!! Thank you for using older stamps we have in our collections...as much as I like to buy new..space is an issue and pulling our old stamps is nice!!
