Poinsettia

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a winter holiday card!  This is my first for the month.  If you're a regular follower, then you know I have a goal of making two each month, so stay tuned tomorrow for a second card.


I gold-heat-embossed the poinsettia (STAMPlorations Christmas Flower Large) and sentiment on maroon cardstock.  I die-cut the panel with a wonky stitched rectangle (Whimsy Stamps Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles) and mounted it on a gold foil panel, then on a snowflake-embossed maroon panel, and then I adhered to a white card base.  To finish the card, I adhered some gold flat-backs to the centre of the poinsettia and a few on the lower right corner.

I would like to support the following 10 challenges:
Craftlandia 3 Flowers 1/2
