Poinsettia Christmas Card

A card for some of my neighbours

I matt and layered this card with gold and white embossed card. I embossed the white card with a Tattered Lace embossing folder. I used the Sue Wilson Poinsettia stained glass window die to make the topper. I have used the die to cut white to use the outline. I then cut in red, gold and green and built up the design in these colours. I added flat backed pearls to the centre of the poinsettias. I die cut the sentiment using a Sue Wilson die and added to the scalloped ovals that I cut with Crafts Too nesting dies. I added the poinsettia to the oval, I cut it with Tattered Lace dies. I mounted the Stained Glass element onto gold then red card before adding to my card blank.
