Square cards

Hello everyone! I have 2 cards to show you today. Let start with this 5" square Christmas card. Here I used Poinsettia Set and matching die. I had a lot of fun creating the background for this card, actually I made a whole page and just cut a piece for this card, so I have a lot more left to use :) First, I sprayed the watercolor page, then added Gelatos in Banana, Acqua Dolce and Blood Orange, mixed them all, then I used Mister Hueys's Sunset and Estate Green. After that I combined Embossing Paste and Amber Gold Paint and added it to the page using a chicken wire template, then let it dry (it takes few hours). Then I die-cut and piece of Watercolor paper using the Poinsettia die, stamped the Poinsettia image and color the image with Inktense Pencils.
I die-cut a border and label in White, stamped the sentiment in Olive Archival and cut half of the label.
Put all pieces together, add crystal lacquer to poinsettia and sprinkle glitter, then add crystal lacquer to the leaves, finally I added a couple of pearls.

Second card, it is super cute and simple. I used the remaining of the red cardstock, and I made a cute 3.5" square card. Die-cut and stamp wreath in Versamark Ink, add gold embossing powder and heat set. Stamp sentiment in Golden Glitz Delicata. Add a couple of pearls and your mini card is done!!

Hope you like them!
Have a fantastic day

Oh so pretty in red! I love them both, but ... I'm so smitten by the little-little 3.5" mini card. I love to give a set of 4 tied with a pretty ribbon as a hostess gift. Hmm, you've inspired me! I have a dinner to attend tomorrow evening. A small set of cards would be just the perfect gift to give. Thanks, Giovana! : )
