Holiday Happiness | 3rd Thurs Blog Hop
Welcome crafters! Today I am participating in the 3rd Thursday’s Blog Hop, and we are featuring projects for the holidays. After you enjoy my project, you can hop along to others who crafted for the hop as well. All the links will be at the end.
If you are regular subscribers to my blog, you know that each week we share a Mystery CASE challenge. This week it has been focused on using die-cut circles and paper ribbons! So my project for today will also fit into that idea.

Flocked Paper Elements
I just love the new Plush Poinsettia Specialty Designer Series Paper. I used just a strip of it to create a layered panel for the front of the card. Then I also trimmed out a single Poinsettia flower for the focal point. I wanted the flocked paper to really pop, so I decided to use strong colors for my card bases.
I could have just layered the DSP on top of the Cherry Cobbler panels, but I decided to open up a window and layer it under. My Winter Snow Embossing Folder was used on the Cherry Cobbler panel started out at 5 1/4 x 4 inches. Then I trimmed off two 3/4 inch strips. One will be used on the front of the card, the other inside for embellishment.
I popped the Cherry Cobbler panels up on dimensionals. And used my liquid glue to add the paper ribbon between the opening in the front two panels.
I kept this fairly simple. I used my Layering Circle and Cherry Cobbler cardstock for a base element. Next I used the Spring Paper Punch with Shaded Spruce cardstock to add some textured. Finally, I trimmed out one Poinsettia Flower from the specialty DSP with my paper snips.
I used my Stampin’ Write Markers – Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce to ink my stamp from the Christmas Means More set. Just used the brush tips and color your stamp. Then HUFF it to re-activate the ink, just in case it dried a bit. The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White to line the card. Then remember that second 3/4 embossed strip from the front panel, add it to the bottom for embellishment. Just trim off the ends.
