Poinsettia Christmas Card
I love using the Flourishes stamp sets! I picked this one up and have just loved using it. I stamped this one with versamark and then in embossed with gold embossing powder, such a pretty look! The leaves were stamped and colored with copic markers. I used the lace and glitter technique to create the background paper. I saw this last summer in San Diego at the Scrapbook Expo. It was be shown by the Sparkle and Sprinkle booth. It is a bit messing but the end results are worth it. I used red and gold glitter. All you need is a piece of lace the size of your card front, sticker paper, glitter and a brayer. You will place the lace on top of the sticky side of the sticker paper and use the darker color glitter first cover the entire sticker paper. Place a piece of paper on top of the glitter and brayer all over, remove the lace and use the lighter color glitter and repeat the steps. It really creates a beautiful background.
