Outlines Poinsettia



I really love this card. And I do so hope my photograph does it justice, because in real life, it's a looker! LOL!

All stamps on this card are from Outlines, and the stamps used for the poinsettia are not really Christmas stamps.

To make the poinsettia I stamped the Medium Clematis twice, and the Large Clematis once on red cardstock. I used VersaMark ink to stamp, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Gold embossing powder.

For the leaves I stamped on green cardstock with Leaf 1 Small and Leaf 1 Medium . They were also stamped with VersaMark, and embossed with JudiKins Detail Gold embossing powder.

All Clematis and leaves were cut out and arranged on the cream colored layer. I used Scotch Foam Tape to layer some of the Clematis to give it dimension.

The sentiment is Outlines Merry . It was stamped twice on green cardstock, then once on red. Layers were cut out and adhered with foam tape.

I hope I didn't skip any steps. If any part of this was unclear, please feel free to email me.

I had a GREAT day today! We had a shoebox party at my house this morning and it was sooooooooooo much fun! I have some cool new cards to share with you later this week, so be sure to check back in.

Thanks so much!
