Metallic poinsettia with a golden Warm Wishes

Hello Crafty Friends!

Christmas is just around the corner...can you believe it?  This month is flying by and I am hurriedly finishing up the holiday cards.  Last week my hubby asked for a card intended for a work colleague.  The card turned out to have shimmer, metallic lustre and was mounted on an interesting corrugated base for extra texture.

The fun instructions:

  1. Create a 5.5 x 5.5 inch tent fold card base from corrugate (or purchase a set from your local crafty store).
  2. Cut red metallic card stock or construction paper to 5.25 x 5.25.  Dry emboss using an embossing folder of your choice.  Mount to card base using liquid adhesive.
  3. Cut gold glitter card stock smaller than red base and mount using liquid adhesive.
  4. Cut watercolor paper to 5 x 5.  Stamp poinsettia using brown archival ink.  Dry.  Apply distress inks along edges.  Color poinsettia using red distress inks and a water color brush.  Dry.  Apply sparkle glitter pens as desired.  Mount to card base using double sided foam tape.
  5. Apply gold Nuvo drops to poinsettia center.
  6. Use Versamark to stamp WarmWishes.  Heat emboss using gold embossing powder.
  7. Cut Warm Wishes to desired size and mount onto red metallic card stock.  Mount to card front using liquid adhesive.
  8. Create double bow and mount as shown using liquid adhesive.
  9. Cut watercolor paper to 5.25 x 5.25.  Stamp All Good Wishes for Christmas & the New Year using red ink.  Mount to inside of card.
The card is full of beautiful calligraphy, textures and finishes.  Love the way it turned out!
