....... and a very Merry Christmas! I hope you're all finished with chores and are able to sit back and enjoy the Holiday season at this point. I'm still dashing around but wanted to share my last card for Sparkle N Sprinkle for 2015! Where has this year gone?
First of all I started with a piece of watercolor cardstock and stamped the Poinsettia from Holiday Foliage Set 475 in Versamark. I then heat embossed the Poinsettia with White Detail and sprinkled the purple and green Nuance powders into the "petal" and "leaf" areas.
These powders when spritzed with water shower color all over the place! Just heat set, like I did, if you can't wait for it to dry!
Once dry, I added Lavender Iris to the flower petals with the Sakura Glue Pen. I then cut the poinsettia into four pieces to make the corners for my card.
On to the center of the card! I made the background with watercolor paper sprinkling the same two Nuance Powders and spritzing with water. I die cut the Cheery Lynn Designs Merry Christmas Die from green cardstock and applied Versamark to the entire piece, which was then heat embossed with Clear Detail embossing powder. I stuck a piece of Super Adhesive Sheet over the Nuance background, removed the protective backing and centered the die cut on the top. Sparkle embossing powder was then sprinkled over the entire piece, sticking to the sticky surface and was then heat embossed, which resulted in this sparkly look.
I layered the "image" onto a piece of purple cardstock (which had a fun textured side and then a purple/red side) and added the four corners of the Poinsettia. The sheer green ribbon bow was added at this point before being layered on to the white card base.
Merry Christmas Hugs,
