I loaded the photos for this card in a collage form so that you could see the various angles. I saw an idea for a sympathy card in this style on Pinterest and knew right away I wanted to use it for the holidays (my next post will show the other version for Halloween)
I used SB dies and a Lori Whitlock cutting file for the poinsettia. Making the flower on my Silhouette was a piece of cake and I was able to size it exactly as I wanted it. I first made this with a blue flower and all white, then I decided I wanted to make one with a red book cover and flower - I love both of them. Definately using some for Christmas cards this year.

Goodness gracious, Sherry!! You have really been juicing up the mojo - L O V E this!!! Looks as though this card was designed specifically to hold this verse, and these layers have me drooling! Your poinsettia is gorgeous and I love that your card has a stand and coordinated box to display - you are truly a talented artist!!
