Poinsettia Christmas card

A 8x8in easel Christmas card which I will personalise at a later date. 

I have matt and layered the top of the card with red card and white embossed card. The white card was embossed with a Creative Expressions embossing folder. I have die cut the trellis using a Cheery Lynn die in red card and backed it onto plain white card. I have die cut the sentiment using a Crafts Too die and glued it onto a scalloped oval. I die cut filigree poinsettia with Sue Wilson dies in gold. Aftering covering the bottom of the card with red card I die cut rectangles with Tonic dies and the  flourish  with a Cheery Lynn die. After assembling my card I completed it with Tonic Nuvo drops and flat backed pearls
