Although the sheet of paper has images of holly leaves and poinsettia flowers on it, by focusing on the pale blue colour in the paper and teaming this with blue cardstock and embelishments I think it's possible to draw the attention away from the Christmassy images.
I matted squares of the patterned paper into blue 'Ocean Breeze' Bazzill cardstock.
My sentiments were printed onto acetate and then put onto squares of the Merry Little Christmas paper which were also matted on the blue cardstock.
The cards were embellished with blue ribbon and some hand made flowers using this tutorial . I've made many of these flowers in the past using flowers punched from scraps of paper. Sometimes I've used brads for the flower centres and sometimes artificial flower stamens. For these cards I used some of each.
