How are you all going with your Christmas preparations? Everyone I know seems to be in shock about how fast the big day is approaching.
Over the past few months I have seen several cards featuring Tim Holtz's Tattered Poinsettia, and so recently I succumbed to temptation, and bought the dies. These cards are the result.
Both cards are almost identical, with a just few variations.
I used a Pergamano 'ball tool' (don't know if it has a proper name) and a pricking mat to mark veins in the leaves and petals, before sponging the edges with Distress Ink.
The base card is dark green.
The inside of the card matches the front, however it never ceases to amaze me how various reds do not photograph accurately - the cardstock for the flowers, and the holly on the DP are fairly true, but the red scalloped rectangle layered under the white message card is not the bright red IRL as it appears here, nor is the narrower ribbon.
