Happy Holidays

I would like to share with you my Christmas Poinsettia Card. I used black embossing powder to emboss the Poinsettia image (G3177) on water color paper and colored using water color pencils, punch out the flower using Marvy mega circle scalloped punch. Also punch out a piece of dark green cardstock using Marvy giga circle scalloped punch, layer these together and set aside. You will notice I did not used the entire poinsettia stamp, only a portion of it.

Stamp the musical "Glorious Song stamp (H2503) on beige cardstock and use Marvy giga scallop circle punch to punch out a portion of the stamp image. Use a sponge to apply some red ink around the edges and set aside.

On red cardstock use Martha Stewart's "Scallop dot edge punch" to trim one edge of the cardstock and attach to the upper edge of a folded green card and attach some trim.

I used the sentiment stamp "All Good Cheer" (D2615) and used the part that says Happy Holiday and stamped it on a ribbon tag from Spellbinders. Now put the card together.

If you notice this is the same image Sherry used on her blog. I will post another poinsettia image in my next blog, for some reason I can not post this picture to this blog where I want it to go.
