Today I have a holiday card featuring some pretty poinsettia florals from Hero Arts and Simon Says Stamp.
I created the embossed resist background with the MFT Script Background Stamp and Forest Moss and Bundled Sage Distress Inks applied with the Mini Ink Blending Tool. I applied the inks with the lightest at top to the darker ink near the bottom. I created the frame by die cutting 3 of the largest frames from the MFT Rectangle Frames Die-namics Set and gluing them one on top of another for a dimensional frame look.
I stamped the poinsettia from the Peace Poinsettia Stamp Set by coloring in the stamp with the Festive Berries Distress Ink, Bundled Sage Distress Ink and Forest Moss Distress Ink. I smoothed out the stamped image with a bit of water and a small paintbrush.
I die cut the Poinsettia Parade die from watercolor paper and watercolored the die cut images with the same Distress Ink colors. I assembled the florals, tucking some under parts of the frame.
I stamped the greeting from the Peace Poinsettia Stamp Set on vellum and embossed it with black embossing powder. Then I die cut the greeting using one of the Fishtail Flags Die-namics dies and tucked the straight edge under the black frame. I finished the card with green pearl gemstones.
