Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!  Looks like closing on our new house has been delayed until Thursday, so we will be in the hotel for a little while longer.  The girls (two little Min Pins) are getting restless with no yard to run in.  I am sure they will be happy to be able to run and play again soon. 

Here is a card I made last Christmas.



I stamped the poinsettia twice with Versamark on blue cardstock and embossed them both with silver glitter embossing powder. Next I colored them with the Pearlescent Watercolors, cut them apart and layered them with dimensionals. I used the large square and scallop Nestibilities for the mat and more of the silver glitter embossing powder on the edges of the blue mats. The Pearlescent Watercolors really added a lot of shimmer to the poinsettia… the photo just doesn’t capture it that well. Thanks for stopping by.
