My last Christmas card of 2019

This is the last Christmas card I have made this year and it is for my daughter. I am not seeing her until next week and am giving her some money so thought I would make a card to put it in. I have been wanting to enter the Day of the month card club #10 Poinsettia Day but I didn't think I had a poinsettia stamp, but then I realised that I have recently bought the Creative Expressions Poinsettia frame die. When I bought it I just thought it was depicting daisies!

I have also been wanting to get my alcohol inks out as it is ages since I last used them. I have made a bright and cheery card with alcohol pearl inks and a very sparkly glitter paper.

I tried to get the shine to show more on this picture without much success.

I realise this is my first post since 2nd December and although this is the last Christmas card I have made this year I have only shared a few of the cards I have made. Perhaps if I get a chance I will put some of them in a post.

It is really difficult to photograph the gloss of the alcohol inks, but I can imagine it. The effect with the frame is great and the lettering is also a special eye catcher.
