Festive Friday - Southwest Christmas

For this week’s Festive Friday card, I thought I would make a Southwest-themed Christmas to include in my "ongoing" cowboy - western - Southwest request.. And the stamps to use for the job are two of my favorites - Animal Spirits Cactus and Petite Poinsettia Stamp Set from Heartfelt Creations.
These cards are actually super simple with mainly layered poinsettia leaves and a cactus.. Super easy and you can actually mass produce - yet vary the card - by different paper and placing the pieces in different locations.  Embellishments are embossed in copper or gold for that extra Southwest festive flair.

Solid Card Stock: Red, Green, White
Patterned Paper: Christmas "scraps", Aumnt scraps (give a Southwest touch)

  1. I love the stamps you used on these cards. I've never seen anything like them. I am really homesick for the desert now.
