Christmas Poinsettia

Hello there, I am back with another Christmas card to share with you. This one is for my Nan. I wanted to use the SSS Poinsettia Parade die again as I love it. For my card, I first took a panel of white cardstock and cut a circle from it using one of the dies from the new SSS Stitched Circle collection - I love that added stitching on the negative die :) I then stamped the sentiment below it from the new Clearly Besotted Sentimental Type set.

I took an A2 card base and added a little SU Glimmer Paper behind where the aperture would be and then added the panel on top with foam tape. I cut the Poinsettia Parade die from white cardstock and coloured the flowers and leaves using Copic Markers, adding a liberal coating of clear WOS on each one. I layered these on top of each other and then adhered this to the centre of the circle. I finished off by adding  a few pearls in the centre of the flower.

Thank you so much for visiting me today. How are you all doing with Christmas prep? I think I am all done with my cards now (I have a few still to share with you on here) but I have some table/place cards decorations to make and some gift card holders too. I have bought all my presents but I still have to wrap those. Such a busy time of year!
