Merry Monday # 105 Decorative Christmas Words

Decorative Christmas Words
to be used on our
On a piece of rustic cream cardstock, I stamped the poinsettias and leaves from  PTI's Peaceful Poinsettia stamp set.
Next I die cut the word:  "holiday" from the stamped card.
I then cut out the word in both black and pure poppy.
I laid the black piece inside the negative space, layered the red over it and slightly off,
then placed the die cut stamped word over that, again slightly off.
the "greetings" is from PTI's Stylish Sentiments:  Christmas
 
 
Thanks for taking a look!
Heart Hugs,
Colleen
