Sparkly Embossed Poinsettia Card
Happy 2014 everyone! I've still got a couple of Christmas cards to share, I meant to post them earlier but time got away from me again! I'm not quite sure where the last few weeks have gone - they absolutely zoomed by! Anyway, this card is the one I made for Alan to give to his wife Jan. I based it on this card I made earlier but I made some small changes.
I made the 5 3/4" square card base from Bermuda Bay CS and used Coastal Cabana CS for the mat layer. The snowflake dry embossed panel was made using white Centura Pearl CS - it's lovely and embosses beautifully! I heat embossed the poinsettia and sentiment with aqua tinsel embossing powder. I fussy cut four layers of the poinsettia and I popped each layer up. I added a gorgeous sparkly embellishment to the flower centre and added a rhinestone to the Bermuda Bay ribbon bow.
Here's the inside of the card where I've used a lovely Ivy Corner Joanna Sheen Signature die. I cut the whole shape from Bermuda Bay CS for the bottom right corner. I then cut two of the centre portions from Coastal Cabana CS and after a bit of snipping I used these pieces to frame the sentiment.
I made an envelope using some pretty Winter Frost papers and I popped up a die cut name label to finish. I am happy to say both Alan and Jan loved the card!
