Good Morning my crafty friends. I am happy you came to visit my blog.
This is a 6-inch square card. For the gold design, I used a piece of white glossy cardstock and used the Spellbinders Merry Filigree Quatrefoil glimmer plate and gold foil. I love using the Spellbinders Glimmer Foil System for adding beautiful foil accents to my cards.
Using Susan's Poinsettia die set, one poinsettia was created. It was die cut using Susan's Specialty Cardstock. Susan's Flower Tool Kit was used to create the veins before coloring. This helps to bring out the scored lines after they are colored. Using the Waffle Flower Media Mat and brushes, red ink was applied to the leaves. White acrylic paint was thinned then using a small paint brush to pick up the paint, it was flicked over the colored die cuts. The bracts were made using green Nuvo drops and a small yellow Prill pressed in on the top.
The Garden Lantern die set includes a candle die. This was die cut using white glossy cardstock. The flame was colored using alcohol markers.
The Pinecone & Evergreen Bough die set was used for the Evergreen Boughs. The Winterberry & Mistletoe die set was used for the other greenery. Red berries were added to the Winterberry branches. Snowflake paste was added to some of the greenery.
