Christmas Blessings Poinsettia

Hello everyone! Hope you all are having a great day! Last year I decided to make Christmas cards to send to my family. Usually, I send store bought cards because I can never decide on a design that I want to make. So I made a few cards in different designs. I was not able to share them in December because many of my relatives in India didn't receive my cards by then and also my laptop was not working!! So I'm here to share one of those Christmas cards.

I used a 5" x 7" card base in ivory color. I used my 1/8" Scor-Tape to make a border around the card base and burnished gold colored Deco foil on it to create this golden border. I stamped the pine leaves from Winnie & Walter - In Bloom: Elsa's Flora stamp set using Hero Arte Forever Green Ink. I used second generation stamping for some color variation. The pine cones, also from the same set, were inked with a brown marker. I stamped the poinsettia on a piece of card stock with Distress Ink Fired Brick and colored it copics for a no-line coloring effect.

Here's a close-up on the bouquet. I stamped the Altenew Snowing stamp with versamark ink and dusted it with Heirloom Gold perfect pearls. I misted it with water to set it. I think this is a good alternative for splatters. I cannot bring myself to splatter paint on a finished project for fear of spoiling it!! For the sentiment, I gold embossed the Verve Christmas Blessings stamp. I used this sentiment for most of my Christmas cards last year. I love how this card has turned out.

Thank you for stopping by. Please let me know your thoughts and comments.
