Poinsettia Christmas Card


Here's yet another wooden background I made with a SNSS wood plank stamp from the grunge borders set. I used assorted distress inks to create a variation of color. The red panel was embossed with a SU! petals a'plenty ef, and the green panel was hand-cut into a fishtail. The doily is from SU! and the poinsettia was made with a set of SB poinsettia dies and leaves. To give the flower some dimension, I curled each petal around a pencil, and for the smaller petals I used a knitting needle to curl them. I added some orange gemstones to the center and finished this by adding a "merry" sentiment, cut with a Sunny Studio die from gold foil cardstock.

I'm sharing this with the following challenges:
