Hi friends! I have a Christmas card to share today. I was inspired by this beautiful Merry Christmas die. It's large and needed a large card to show it off well. I used a classic red and green color scheme and cut the Poinsettias out of a patterned paper from an old Christmas stack.
I began by layering another patterned paper on top of a 5.5" white card base. Then I added a white mat before gluing the Merry Christmas, Holly Lace Flourish dies and Poinsettias. I cut the poinsettia strip die twice to get enough for the arrangement I wanted. The Holly die was also cut twice out of a dark green textured card stock.
Last I added pearl centers to the flowers and a glitter paste. I also sprinkled dry glitter over the paste while it was still wet because it's a new supply for me and I wasn't sure it would be sparkly or white enough. 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. I sprinkled some white Frantage embossing powder in the corners for a little extra interest.
