Featured Artist-Deanna M (Holiday Card)

Here is a Christmas card I made using the Ultra Soft Flower Soft. I started with a 5 1/2" X 5 1/2 card base made from Kraft card stock. I added a red mat cut at 5 1/4" X 5 1/4" and a piece of patterned paper cut at 5" X 5". I rounded the lower corners of the card base and each of the mat layers. The wreath was cut from the Cricut Christmas solutions at 3 1/2". The base layer of the wreath was cut from dark green card stock. I ran it through my Xyron upside down so the adhesive was on the top of my cut, and covered it with the Pine Ultra Soft Flower Soft. The lighter colored leaves were cut from some light olive green paper, again run upside down in my Xyron and covered with the Sage colored Ultra Soft Flower Soft. I used the Flower soft adhesive to adhere the Sage colored leave to the wreath. I added some drops of the Flower Soft adhesive and covered them with the Strawberry Ultra Soft Flower soft. I wanted them to look like Holly Berries. I just sprinkle the glue with the Flower Soft and left it to dry then tapped off the excess. I also covered the Ribbon cut with the Strawberry Ultra Soft Flower Soft. I adhered the wreath to the card front with some foam tape. The sheer ivory ribbon is from my stash. For the sentiment, I stamped it on a small scrap of kraft card stock and rounded the ends and added a mat of red. I used my Crop-a-dile to punch a hole in each end of the tag and added a gold colored brad. I adhered the tag to the front of the card with foam tape.


  1. Nice card. You did a great job with the flower soft. Mine nevers seems to turn out good.Congrats on being a featured artist
