Sending Holiday Wishes

I was so excited when Papertrey came out with dies for this Poinsettia flower! I die cut both sizes (from Sweet Blush) and stamped the line art images with Autumn Rose ink. The flowers are layered with dimensionals.

The card base is their new Limeade Ice (I wish I could get the brightness correct for this color). It is a bit untraditional, but those are my favorite!

I used the Simple Stripes impression plate to emboss the top half of my card. To do that, I cut cardboard to be the dimensions I wanted to be embossed (in this case 5 1/2 x 3). Then I positioned the impression plate onto the card base and used my card board as a shim (instead of the full-size rubber mats).

The final touch was a bit of silver glitter pen in the flower center.

Thanks for taking a peek!
