Without any urgent need for a card for an upcoming occasion, I've been thinking about my Christmas cards. I saw the challenge over at Merry Monday and thought I'd play along.
I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted when I saw the challenge. I have been waiting for a time to use gold embossing powder on vellum because the effect is so pretty.
I don't have a large poinsettia stamp, which would have made this card much easier, but I do have good 'ol Pick A Petal. I used this stamp set before to make a poinsettia flower and it's a decent representation. Twelve petals to stamp, emboss and cut out. The background? Strips of paper in the challenge colors. Again, having glittered paper would have made this easier. Instead, I used Scor-tape on strips to adhered the glitter. It was labor intensive, let me tell you! Very pretty, but labor intensive! For that reason alone, I only made two or these cards.
