Merry Christmas

It's time for another What If? Wednesday challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a color combo for you to use:
It's just perfect for Christmas, but it's a gorgeous color combo and could work for so many occasions.  I went with the Christmas theme:
Repeat Impressions "Poinsettia" stamp is perfect for adding some dimension.  I stamped a total of six flowers; fussy cut 3 whole flowers and 3 centers only and layered them together with some foam tape.  I colored some white pearls with my gold paint pen and added them to the centers.  I masked portions of the sentiment to get it to fit on my tag and finished the tag off with some frantage embossing powder.
I can't wait to see what you create with this color combo!  I believe this is our last challenge before Christmas so now is the time to join in.  Hope on over to The House blog for the full details and see what the rest of the team has done with this color combo.

Supplies:
Stamps: Repeat Impressions "2012W Poinsettia" and "1141W Christmas"
Dies: Spellbinders "Floral Doily Motifs"; PTI Tag Sale die; MFT "Fancy Flourish"
Darice musical score embossing folder

Heather, this has to be one of my absolute favorite cards that you've ever made. I love the dimension, the embossing, the design, all of it. Just fabulous. Did you color the poinsettia or is it card stock?

Ooooh, this is so elegant. I love those ruby red poinsettias against the white and cream background...and that embossing folder is perfect and then the ink on it...fabulous. The embossing powder with glitter in it is perfect. Your bow is beautiful! Thanks for joining us at Craft-Dee BowZ for our December challenge! Hugs, Gail
