CAS Watercolored Poinsettia – Christmas Season

Hello everyone… I am back with Christmas card (again)…It is a CAS Watercolored Poinsettia Christmas Season card.

I have been making Christmas card using the Poinsettia Greetings stamp set from A Jillian Vance Design. I stamp and heat embossed the poinsettia with gold embossing powder. And then I colored them using watercolors brush pens and watercolor brush.

After the watercolor paint dried, I fussy cut the flower. On my card today I only used the smaller size of poinsettia.

I die cut a one of side of the white card base using one of the Elegant Stitched Dot Edge Dies. I added a piece of clear acetate on the back of the die cut using strong double sided tape. And then I added the other piece of the edge die cut, aligned it a the bottom of the card and cut off the extra.

I added some gold metallic splatters on the card with flat watercolor brush and Finetec Gold watercolor paint.

I stamped the sentiment directly on the acetate window using StazOn Black ink pad. Then I added the flower with 3D foam tape and finished it with some of the Scralett Satin Sequins.

Today I am also sharing this card at A Jillian Vance Design Blog… I hope you find an inspiration to create your holiday project. THANK YOU so much for stopping by today. May you all have a fabulous blessed day!
