Christmas in July

I wanted to get a head start on making my Christmas cards and I've been trying to come up with a design that I liked. Monday I think I found what I want to do. This will be the basic layout the patterned paper may or may not change. Some may have this paper and some may have something else. That I haven't decided yet. I suppose it will depend on how much I have.

Here's a close-up of the poinsettia. This is a free Cut file from Ginacreates.com


I added a little more character to it by inking the edges and making the vein lines in the pedals
Next I just need to decide how I want to stamp this.
I think I'm also going to add  a ribbon to break up that large white space. As for the stamping I may use one of the above or go with something completely different.

That is beautiful and elaborate. Explain to me please how those "sheets" of words are used in stamping?

I'm playing "catchup" commenting and just wanted to let you know that I think you have the start of an awesome Christmas card here. I love Poinsettia and your design looks great. I think the sentiment would work well with this.
