This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge inspired my Christmas poinsettia card this week. My card base is Whisper White. The diagonal stripe DSP is from the Candy Cane Lane paper assortment. Love this paper! The Garden Green layer was embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder. I used a strip of Gold Satin ribbon. After stamping the leaves and the petals of the poinsettia I traced the veins with clear Wink of Stella glitter pen. After assembling the flower I put a gold doily behind it and used dimensionals to adhere to the Garden Green layer. I embellished the Gold Satin Ribbon with small pearls. I also used gold sequins and pearls to embellish the card. I gold embossed the sentiment from the Christmas Pines stamp set on the Whisper White banner.
The inside of the card I stamped allover with the star background with Gold Encore ink then stamped in Real Red the sentiment from the Christmas Pines stamp set
