Hello blogging friends!
Today I'm sharing something different for me, but I do like the way this came out! I wondered if I'd like this newly released ODBD Poinsettia Wreath embossed in gold on black, so I gave it a try! I then cut it out with the Custom Poinsettia Wreath Die, and when I put it on this ivory base, I loved it! So from there I decided to create ivory poinsettias, so I stamped three of the single poinsettias and the bow in the set on water color paper with Versamark, and embossed in gold, and cut out with the custom die. Then I lightly water colored with markers to give just a hint of color, and I added them to the wreath with dimensionals. The base is black and there is a brushed gold mat. The sentiment from the newly released Christmas Pattern Ornament set is embossed in gold directly on the card stock. So quick.... so easy.... but I think very elegant as well. I will add a white layer inside for my message, but this one is an easy one to make in mass. Guess I better get busy!!!
I am entering this in the following challenges:
