Poinsettia Christmas Card

For this card I have used a Sue Wilson die from the stained glass collection. I have cut it out in white and used that as the background and mounted it onto gold and red. I then die cut it in gold, red and green. I paper pieced the elements. I added flat backed pearls to the centre of the poinsettias.

I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with gold and then white embossed card. I have embossed the white card with a Tattered Lace embossing folder. I added the completed stained glass element with foam pads. I die cut scalloped ovals using a nesting set by Go Kreate, I have cut red, gold and then white ovals. I then added the die cut sentiment that I cut with a Sue Wilson die. I also added a die cut poinsettia that I die cut with a Tattered Lace die. I embellished that with a flat backed
