Blog Blitz Day Four...

WELCOME to Day Four of the Memory Box 2015 Holiday release Blog Blitz!  A week of inspiration and chances to win beautiful dies from the new collection!

Pam here to share a festive Christmas card using the NEW Poinsettia Ribbon die.  I die cut it in Metallic Gold and Red card-stock and mounted the gold ribbon piece with mounting squares behind the ribbon part and then mounting squares behind each of the red poinsettia petals. A gorgeous die!  I love it!

 I did the ink smooshing watercolor technique for the background in three Distress ink colors, Abandoned Coral, Barn Red and Fired Brick.  A few spatters of gold ink and some pearls to glam it up a little.  

I mounted the panel to gold card-stock and then to a 5.5 inch square white card base, that I stamped the Merry Christmas Combo stamp on, and embossed in gold embossing powder.

Great card! I really like how you did the background.

How elegant, this die is beautiful.

Beautiful card - and I just love that die! Thanks so much for the chance to win!!

That would look great done with Color Burst Water color also, don't you think? I like the distress inks you used too, don't get me wrong, I'm just naturally thinking of other applications for that fun new technique.

Superbe carte! Bises
