Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Holiday Greenery


Hello,  I am absolutely thrilled to be guesting this month at The Twofer Challenge.  This is a challenge that I absolutely love and look so forward to each and every month!  I love that this challenge pushes my creativity and to think outside the box! Thanks so much Darnell for having me!  The words this time around are Holiday Greenery, which is perfect for this time of year!  My cards are a little more straight forward this month, as last month I created colorful paint splatters out of dripping chocolate.

There is a TWIST this month a Twofer Normally, you need to make two cards for two different occasions. Because so many of us are madly working on Christmas/holiday cards, for this month only, they are forgoing that element of Twofer!  So for this challenge, you may enter two of the same occasion cards! Or you make stick to the traditional format as I have done above.

Here are a few of my card details:  The Pointsettia die is from Memory Box, the stitched frames are from MFT, the Joyous sentiment is from Art Impressions, the thank you is from MFT, the leaves are from Stampin Up, and the Pinecones are from Verve. Some Nuvo drops and Wink of Stella for some added sparkle.

You must hurry on over to the Twofer Blog and check out all the amazing cards from the Design Team…I know they will inspire you to join us!  Can’t wait to see what you decide to do! The Twofer traditional way or the Twist!

Now, Go Create an Amazing Day, Nanc’

  1. Very pretty, Nancy! I love poinsettias and can never get enough of them.

  2. Thank you so much for being our Guest Designer this month, Nanc’! Your poinsettia designs are both beautiful! Your Christmas card design reminds me of an awesome front door welcome and your thank you card is a great idea ~ something we all need this time of year! I love the evergreen and poinsettia corner display with the stripey border. (You should enter it over at the Flower Challenge!) Hugs, Darnell

  3. Congrats on your GD spot. These are two beautiful cards, Nancy.

  4. So very happy that you are Guest Designer this month at Twofer, Nancy. Your cards here are delightful! LOVE the colors you’ve chosen for both cards, and that poinsettia die is simply beautiful. The stripes, the foliage, and those frames really highlight those amazing blooms. Great cards! Happy Thanksgiving!

  7. Nancy, I’m so glad you could be our guest designer this month! Your cards are beautiful, clean, and absolutely perfect! I love all the extra greenery behind the poinsettia on your thank you card. Those red stripes really grab me, too. The two frames on your Christmas card give it texture and interested, yet don’t take away from the CASness of it. Love both!

  8. Your twofer cards are both absolutely gorgeous! Congratulations on being guest designer. xxx

  9. Congratulations on your GD spot Nancy!! your cards are truly stunning in both design and classic colors! I love the amount of white space you used which really highlighted each pop of beautiful color!!

  10. A festive, fresh and lovely twofer, Nancy! That first single poinsettia really pops against the white on white framing … and the layered greenery behind that gorgeous double act is fabulous with the added pine cones and that delicious peppermint striping! Thanks so much for inspiring our players so wonderfully as our Guest Designer at Twofer! Hugs, Anita 🙂

  11. Wonderful twofer Nancy! I love how you used your poinsettia on the clean white with gold embossing for a crisp and elegant look. The two together look amazing among the sprigs and I love the stripes! Thanks for being our guest designer this month, your cards are very inspiring!

  12. Congrats on your Twofer Guest Designer spot and what a pretty pair of cards you’ve created! The poinsettia looks so nice all framed out for Christmas and with the added stamped pines, it makes an equally lovely thank-you card! I especially like the slightly tilted angle of the thank-you card – it has great eye appeal! Great twofer 🙂

  13. Hi Nancy!! It’s about time I got over here to see these beauties up close, and personal!! lol I admired them on IG – but had to know where the leaves came from – you know, just to have ONE MORE THING on my wish list!!
    Two gorgeous Christmas cards – that Poinsettia is amazing in that bright red you’ve chosen!
    Congratulations on your well-deserved win, and for being the Twofer Guest Designer this month! xx

  14. Such a lovely pair of poinsettia cards for your Twofer guest designer slot, Nancy! Especially love card two with the dangling greens and the red/white striped bottom! Card one is great too with the pair of frames!!

  15. Congrats on your guest spot. Two fabulous cards and the Poinsettia is gorgeous xx
