crafty christmas countdown: day 14

The Anna Griffin layout and card below are great examples of how to use large bold patterned paper in your paper crafts.  I used the same sheet of poinsettia paper from the 100 Sheets of Christmas Paper HSN kit.  The poinsettia images were very large and I thought they would look great cut out and clustered with some other elements on a scrapbook page.  Here’s how it turned out on the layout:

Obviously I loved the poinsettias so much, I used them again on this 5×7 card.  This time I used them as a background for my card sentiment and focal point.  They edges extend just beyond the borders of the card, adding a little extra visual interest.  And while a good chuck of the poinsettias are covered, enough of them show through on either side of the sentiment that your eyes automatically fill in the rest.
