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.
