Heartfelt and Shabby

Hello friends, and Welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!
Today I have a shabby chic Christmas card to share with you~

I used one of the gorgeous new Heartfelt Creations tree dies and then embellished it with gold embossed poinsettias that I made, using the new poinsettia set that matches the Sun Kissed Fleur die. The die cuts multiple flowers at once-  talk about a time saver!  And these days, I can use all the time saving I can get!  For complete instructions, please go to the bottom of this post. 
For more inspiration from the very talented Design Team, check out the Heartfelt Creations blog.  
Thanks so much for visiting my blog and have a blessed week!
