Purple Poinsettias

Morning my crafting friends, hope today finds you all well? Thank you for looking in on me today its very much appreciated and please feel free to post a comment I would love to hear what you think of my creations.

Good luck to all those up in Scotland today, I hope you get the vote you want.

For todays post I got the old faithful Christmas bauble dies out again, I wanted to use my Purple Pearlescent card but only had one sheet left which meant not much matting & layering, I got round it by adding the one and only embossed Purple card I had with the swirly pattern on, I had three sheets of this Satin Gold Miri card left so I used that as the base card followed by the swirl embossed card, more Gold card, which I edged round with double sided tape and added glitter, this made it look like another layer!Then the sheet of Purple Pearlescent on top of this. I die cut the Christmas Ornaments 2011 out of the Gold & Purple card so you see the card behind and die cut the smaller one in Gold for the sentiment.

From the off cuts of the Gold, Purple & Purple Swirl card I die cut the Poinsettias and leaves, adding some glitter on the vines of the leaves and inking the flowers with Shaded Lilac. To finish the flowers I added a sparkly brad in the center of each flower, Gold for the Purple and Purple for the Gold. I placed these round the edge of the die cut Bauble, leaving just one for the other side. I stamped my sentiment onto the small Bauble with Versamark then heat embossed with Purple embossing powder, attaching this to the center finished the card. Dimensions are 8"X8".
