Here is my card. I created this card featuring several files in the Pazzles Craft Room. You can find thousands of files for every kind of paper crafting need.  I used some wonderful paper from the DCWV Christmas and Winter Stack. 

I decided to make my card an Easel Card. Here is a view of the card opened.

I cut the poinsettias and leaves from some Bazzill Red and Green cardstock.  I inked the edges of the Poinsettia with some Cranberry Ink. I used some Topiary Ink on the edges of the leaves.

Here is a close up of the chalkboard art I created. One of the wonderful things about the Pazzles Inspiration is the fabulous Software that goes with the machine. You can create and do so many wonderful things with it. Among the great things is the ability to create your own print n’ cut files.  I created this chalkboard art right in my inspiration studio software. I used some free fonts as well as creating some right in the software. As a little gift to everyone, I am giving this away as a freebie during this hop.
