Poinsettias Christmas Card

Hi Bloggers.

I have another card for you this evening. I'm entering this card into Sweet Sketch Wednesday 124 Challenge this week.

I used a Craftwork Cards 6" x 6" card blank. The papers are from the Wild Rose Studio Christmas Milton Paper Pack. The images are from the Creative Expressions Tatty Button Poinsettias stamp set. They were stamped in Jet Black Archival and quickly embossed with clear powder. They were coloured using Cosmic Shimmer Drawing Inks - I used some matt ones and some with mica.

I used the 'out of the box' technique to cut the oval nestie around the image. The two panels were embossed using the Creative Expressions Lattice embossing folder.

The card was assembled as per the sketch.

Hope you like it.
