A La Vie & Poppy Christmas

For today's Christmas card reveal... La Vie en Rose and Poppy! Do the design look familiar?? I have used it before but it comes from Make It from Your Heart Volume 2, Pattern 28. I love all the how to books from CTMH. They are a great source to help jump start the creative mojo.

The La Vie en Rose Paper Packet is lovely and fully of drama as I always find black and white to be so striking. For this card I paired the quartrefoil patterned papers from La Vie with a new colour called Poppy, which I embossed using the Quatrefoil Embossing Folder and lightly sanded it to bring out the white core. For some sparkle and to add more colour I then added the Coral Shimmer Trim (on a Slate cardstock base) and a few of the pretty flowers from the White Pine Complements. The white daisy piece was cut from the Cricut Art Philosophy Collection and the sentiment is from the Pear & Partridge Scrabooking WOTG from a few years ago.  I try not to use retired sentiments and stamps in my workshops but this one just fit the card perfectly.

I am going to submit this card to Color My Heart Color Dare #165 which is to use Ruby, Slate, Black and Whisper. I did use Poppy instead of Ruby and no Whisper but... I think it should be ok.

Thank you for stopping by, I truly appreciate your comments!

Happy Crafting.
