Christmas with Flowers

There are so many images from my childhood that mean Christmas - a Poinsettia is one of them. I remember more than one Christmas when my Mum would purchase one.
So in the spirit of the Christmas Flower, I created this card using the Reason for the Season stamp set which was recently released in the 2015 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue. I loved this simple use of the stamp set to create my background. 


The flowers have been heat embossed in clear, which brings out the colour of the card stock and gives it a shine and a little pop. The sentiment "A very Merry Christmas to You" is also from the Reason for the Season stamp set. All I have added is a simple piece of white ribbon. Sometimes simple is the way to go.

Now while I, and many others refer to them as flowers, they are not in fact flowers at all.
 The red colouring does not come from the flowers; the flowers are the white insignificant clusters in the centre. These coloured bracts are actually modified leaves (Information directly from Gardening Australia ABC).

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I enjoyed making it.
