A little bit of a mixed card today with the formality of the the stamped and die cut poinsettias mixed with the gentler embossing and distress inking.
I started this one by embossing a piece of milk coloured card through a DoCrafts Christmas embossing folder with the legend Let It Snow. I then used added linen distress ink to highlight the words and the embossing, following this I added some PVA glue pearls on the dots in the folder and on the centres of the beautiful snowflakes.
The poinsettias are stamped with the filigree stamps that match the classic Poinsettia die from Sue Wilson. I stamped these in perfect medium and embossed them with detail silver embossing powder. onto vintage silver foundation card. I shaped them and made them into 2 full flowers and added some more of the pearl PVA as the centres.
The spray of flowers are added on top of 2 of the foliage die cuts form the Sue Wilson Grand Vinery die which is then spread across the left hand corner. This, I feel, frames the sentiment and adds some interest to what could of been a plain card.
The remainder of the card is simply made by layering Vintage gold, Milk and Khaki foundation card (all form the naturals pack of card form Creative Expression) to frame the piece.
