Thinking about Christmas cards already? It's never too early to start as far as I'm concerned.
I made this sample for a workshop I'm doing this week. The hostess loves the color purple, so I chose Rich Razzleberry as my purple of choice.
The stamp set is called "Reason for the Season" and is found in the current mini catalog. I began by preparing the card base using my embossing buddy, and stamped the poinsettia image randomly on the card front using Versamark ink. I sprinkled it with clear embossing powder, then heat set it with my heat gun. The card base is a normal A2 sized card, 4-1/4" x 11" and scored at 5-1/2".
The strip of white cardstock measures 2" x 4-1/4". I stamped the poinsettia in Stazon black ink, and colored the petals and leaves with Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Crushed Curry markers. I added glitter pen (non-SU) and Dazzling Details in gold to the center. The sentiment was stamped with Stazon. This layer was glued to two 1/2" strips of gold glitter paper, then attached to the card front with Stampin'Dimensionals.
The card really sparkles so much more in person!
