Watercolor Winter Sparkling Poinsettias

Christmas cards really aren't Christmas cards, to me, without a little bling!  And, today's projects showcase four sparkling elements!

Poinsettias - two cool

I've been playing with the awesome Watercolor Winter stamp set.  Wow!  With seven elegant, two-step stamping images, it really is a versatile set! 

Poinsettias - v

I started with a Gumball Green card base, and added random stamping with the holly leaves image in the same color.  The striped paper comes from Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper.

Sparkle #1: Silver Glimmer Paper was used to created a Dotted Scallop Ribbon punched border to tie the two background panels together.

Poinsettias - v3

The Greetings of the Season sentiment was colored with Gumball Green and Cherry Cobbler Markers before stamping onto Very Vanilla card stock.  After stamping, I die-cut the image with an Apothecary Accents Framelit.

Sparkle #2: Rhinestone Jewels flank each side of the greeting—blingin' it up!

Poinsettias - v2

Some pretty poinsettias were added as accents!  The Watercolor Winter poinsettia flower line image was stamped in Cherry Cobbler onto Very Vanilla card stock.  The second step, with the bolder design, was also inked in Cherry Cobbler, but stamped off once onto scrap paper to create a lighter shade.  Each flower was hand-cut.  Yep. Sometimes you have to actually cut the shapes out!  Boy, we can get spoiled with all of those matching Framelits and punches, can't we?!

Sparkle #3: Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details glitter glue was dotted onto the centers of each flower.

Sparkle #4: Dazzling Diamonds glitter was added to each flower with a 2-Way Glue Pen.

Woohoo!  That's four times the sparkle-power of most holiday cards!  Oh yeah!

I like layout of the design elements of the horizontal version even better!
