Poinsettia


I did manage to make a Penny Black card inspired by Pinterest which was to use vellum and white embossing.  We all know that white on kraft looks striking.

So I used the Penny Black Poinsettia stamp with versamark and WOW white embossing powder. I make sure the heat gun has already heated up especially has I have the hairdryer type. As soon as the embossing powder melts I move swiftly to another part.

When cutting out I try to cut outside of the leaf because the embossed lines might lift if you cut it.

I cut out the square with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Square and mat with white card. The Merry Christmas is cut twice from the Simon Says Stamp die.

Finished with some red pearls to make it really pop.
