Yes, friends, as I have confessed in the title of this post, I have another
card which features a poinsettia. I made this one for a friend, Maree,
who is a volunteer in the shop at the Fort.
Unfortunately the embossing on the layered panel does not show up well in
the photo...it has curved "Merry Christmas" all over it, and I positioned the
folder so as to show a "Merry Christmas" in the bottom right-hand corner
instead of a stamped greeting.
A closer look at the poinsettia. To say that I LOVE this die and the matching
embossing folder is a major understatement. The die alone is lovely, but the
embossing adds so much more texture. Before embossing the die-cut, I
sponged all the edges with Distress Ink. Once again, I made the bead
sprays with some of the glass beads I bought in Paris several years ago.
Inside the card. I also LOVE my Aspen Snowflakes corner and border punches,
and they have certainly 'earned their keep' this Christmas.
