Joyful Christmas

So far, so good.  I have been able to stay focused on making Christmas cards.  This is my second one.

The image of the Poinsettia was stamped with Versa Mark twice and embossed with gold embossing powder.  One entire flower was coloured with Cherry Cobbler blendabilities; only the middle flower was coloured in the second flower.  The middle flower was then cut out and attached to the larger flower using dimensions.  I put some gold glitter in the center.

The leaves were also embossed with gold embossing powder and coloured with Old Olive blendabilities, and then cut out.  They were attached to the underside of the flower using glue dots.

The completed flower was attached to a circle of Champagne glitter paper die cut using the Circles framelit.

The base card is Real Red, layered with Whisper White embossed with On Point embossing folder.  The designer paper was die cut using the square framelits and layered with Real Red card stock.  At one end is a strip of Old Olive paper embossed with the polka dot embossing folder.  A strip of red scalloped cardstock is attached to the outer side of the panel.  The ribbon is red satin.
