Good News & my "Red Poinsettia Card"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so excited and so thankful to God and all of y'all for your prayers!  Thank you so much.  The results from my PET scan yesterday are good.......no signs of cancer and I don't have another PET scan scheduled until until March 18, 2014!!!!  Everyone there said that I was looking so good!  The only thing I did not like is that I have gained 5 lbs....but the tech that does the PET scan said that that is a good sign as it means I am on the mend from all of the radiation.  Awww, now I can breathe for a while!!!

OK, now back to my passion (besides my DH), crafting!!!  I have completed the "red poinsettia" A2 Frame Card and have photos to share.  

For this one, I did not use the clear embossing powder, I just gave the ink on the vellum a bit of time to dry and I actually think it's better NOT to emboss as I think it cuts better.  I used a couple of "Bic Mark-Its" to color this one.  For my darker color I chose "Rambunctious Red" and for my lighter color I chose "Sunset Orange" and I rather like how it turned out!  For the sentiment I used the "1 Bicarbonite DNA" font and I cut it out of a vinyl sample from signwarehouse.com that they sent me ages ago called "Champagne Gold Holographic"...love it!!!  Here is a close-up of the poinsettia.

Now, here are a couple of photos of the back of the card, showing the easel.  For this one I actually cut three of the easel and glued them together.  I did not score them with my cutter, instead after I glued them together I scored it with my Scor-Pal and I actually liked that method much better than cutting it out of cereal box and then having to paint or cover it with paper like I did with the first poinsettia card.

I will be making a "signature" label to go on the back of each card.....maybe using a "Christmas Bell" or "Christmas Tree" shape...have not decided yet!

Hey, once again, thanks for all of the prayers and support...they mean so much to me and thanks for stopping by.  Hurry back!!!

Wish I found this a few days ago, but will definitely be using it to make a couple of cards for my late Christmas gifts. It should totally make up for lateness. (they're so cute!)
