Poinsettia Christmas Card

I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with red and white embossed card, I embossed the white card using a Crafts Too embossing folder. I have die cut the  trellis using a Tonic die and then die cut the poinsettia using a Marianne die,  holly flourish using a Cheery Lynn die and the candles using a Marianne die. I assembled all the elements together and then added them to my card. I completed my card with Tonic Nuvo drops and flat backed pearls
