Hi friends, it's Jenny her with you today sharing a Christmas card. I was inspired by this beautiful Merry Christmas die. It's large and I wanted to use it on a a larger card to really let it shine. I used a classic red and green color scheme and cut the Poinsettias out of a patterned paper from an older Bo Bunny Christmas stack.
I began by layering patterned paper on top of a 5.5" white card base. I added a white square before gluing the Merry Christmas, Holly Lace Flourish and Poinsettia dies. I cut the Poinsettia Strip twice to get enough blooms for the arrangement I wanted. The flowers were all double layered for fullness. The Holly Lace Flourish was also cut twice out of a dark green textured card stock.
For the extra finishing touches I glued pearl centers on the flowers and spread glitter paste on the petal edges. I sprinkled dry glitter over the paste while it was still wet. This paste is a new supply for me and I wasn't sure it would be sparkly or white enough for how I'd envisioned it. As one of my DT sisters recently said it's the season of glitter and I don't think you can go overboard during the holidays. For extra interest I added white Frantage embossing powder in the corners and heated with a heat tool from underneath.
