Poinsettia Part II

Okay, so the last poinsettia card was fairly simple, this one I think is a little more elegant.  It's amazing to me how the same stamp can look so different depending on how you use it. 

Elegant Poinsettia

I used a Poppy Stamp for the background under the poinsettia.  Doesn't it look lovely embossed in gold.  Here are the instructions:

Stamp the poinsettia twice (you need two images, so that you can cut one for the center) with Versamark on glossy paper and emboss with white embossing powder.  Sponge with Distress Ink until you are happy, then spritz with Perfect Pearls pearl and water mixture.  You may need to add a little more color after spritzing -- your choice (I added a little.) Die cut one of the poinsettias.  Trim out just the center portion of the other poinsettia.  Stamp Fancy Background on parchment with Versamark and emboss with  Queen's Gold embossing powder and trim around edge.  Stamp Merry Christmas on Soiree Chocolate scrap and emboss with Queen's Gold and trim closely.  Emboss Soiree chocolate rectangle with embossing folder.  Die cut label from Parchment paper.  Layer everything.  I added pop dots under Fancy background, under the sentiment and under the poinsettia layers.  Add pearls to center of poinsettia.

Another beautiful design! It looks so much more elegant in person than shows up here so everyone should try it!

Somehow I missed seeing this card in person, but it truly is elegant and truly a gift to anyone that receives it. I loved the shading on the poinsettia.

This card is lovely! I hope to see it in person, also! Is it at Baas Jct in Toledo?? Thanks for sharing your designs, Debbie!
