Well its back to Christmas Friday as I try to get back on track from all the recent shows!
Today's card is again using stamps to die for I seem to have gone on a little bit of a stamping track this week! I stared by stamping the Shaded poinsettia onto a clear velum with perfect medium. I then heat embossed these with Silver Shine detail embossing powder from Cosmic Shimmer. I cut these out with the matching Classic Poinsettia die and made up the flowers in three sizes by using 2 of each size to make a single poinsettia. I added silver dazzlers in the centre of each flower just to make them more realistic.
To make the card to match the flowers I embossed a piece of coconut white card using the Holly Trellis A4 embossing folder. I rubbed over the surface with pewter gilding and polished it up with a dry wet wipe ( this gets off the darker shade and leaves the shine behind)
Next I cut 2 of the snowflake borders in black foundation card and again added the gilding wax to highlight the embossed areas. I stock these to a strip of card so that they faced away from each other. I covered the card strip in the centre using seam binding which adds another texture.
This is a complex looking card but really is simple to do!
