With these thoughts in mind, I concluded that my cards would need
1) Be quick to make
2) Use inexpensive materials
3) Not look quick and easy
I went onto the internet looking for inspiration, and saw quite a few designs for "white on white" cards. What a great idea! Not only did I have white cardstock, it saved me from the AGONY of paper selection, plus it looks classy! Luckily I had some green cardstock for the leaves, so I didn't have to leave the house to buy any additional supplies! (Apart from the white ribbon, once I discovered I only had enough to make 4 cards).
The background was stamped using a Stampin' Up embossing folder. The poinsettia and label are both from Spellbinders. The glimmer on the poinsettia leaves is Lumiere paint (pearl white), and centres are mico beads.
Of course, I still have all that Christmas paper left.....
