Blue Poinsettias

Good Morning.
Had some time to play and got another Christmas card finished.
This one was easy and came together quickly using the beautiful Perfect Poinsettias embossing folder.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I cut a piece of white cardstock and placed it into the Perfect Poinsettias eb folder and ran it through my machine to emboss it.
  • With the raised area facing up, I took my Uncharted Mariner Distress Oxide ink and rubbed over the embossed areas, keeping the pad as flat against the cardstock as possible.
  • After it dried, I sanded it off in a few places to reveal more of the white, then splattered with my white Posca pen.
  • I die cut the sentiment from some white cardstock 3 times and glued them together.
  • This die has a shadow outline, so I cut that from the embossed panel and glued the sentiment into place over that.
  • I glued the panel onto another piece of white cardstock, then onto an A2 sized card base.
  • I popped the sentiment back into place and added a silver gem to the top of the 'jolly'.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

WOW, Karen, this is gorgeous! Now I have a new embossing folder on my wishlist. I love the UM color, but it really works so well here. Thanks so much for joining us at CRAFT Challenge this week!
