Ooops, I Lied! Another Cricut Christmas Card

Sorry folks, but I wanted to show you how the card for our church's shut-ins turned out. I used Joys of the Season for the poinsettia. I cut out the base layer once (Old Olive) and the second layer twice, once out of Cherry Cobbler and once out of Real Red. I sponged the edges of the base and top layers and rotated the top layer and popped it up on foam tape for a mor full look. I added gold Stickles to the center. The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs. I made 20 of these and they were a lot of work! And they did turn out just gorgeous, so I'm glad I did it. I started out with a simple plan in mind but I kept thinking of things like the extra layer cut from a different color and sponged that would just add so much! Our church had also given each shut-in a poinsettia plant for Christmas, which I didn't know about when I made these cards. A happy accident!
This card measures 8.5 x 5.5 to accomodate lots of the congregation members' signatures. Base is PTI. Thanks for looking!
