Hello! It's Monika here today with couple of Christmas cards. I decided to take out the Poinsettia Clear Stamp Set. I remembered how much I liked using the pretty flower last year...
While I did not use the coordinating die, Poinsettia Die, it is very handy when you want to mass produce your card.
One my first card, I stamped my flower(s) on Vellum and heat embossed them with White Embossing Powder. Then colored the images with PrismaColor Pencils and blended the colors with a wet water color brush. Because of the water, the vellum curled up, giving my flower a nice dimension. The background was sponged with green ink and splashed with water. The greeting came from We Three Kings Clear Stamp Set. I finished the card off with gold embellishments (washi tape border, gold thread, gold half pearls).
On the second card, I left the Poinsettia flower white/clear. The background was sponged with black ink and I used silver embellishments (washi tape, silver thread, silver rhinestones) to give this black and white card a classy touch.
I hope I inspired you to make a Christmas card today.
Thank you for stopping by,
