Let's be Merry
Hi everyone. I really wanted to play along with this week's Merry Monday #209 - photo inspiration challenge. I'm just squeaking in under the wire. The challenge closes in a couple of hours.
I used a NBUS die from Memory Box called Blissful Bundle. I die-cut it from green card stock and also from red. I cut out the small little flowers from the red, glued them on top of the green and coated them with red glitter glue for some sparkle. I also coated the two small poinsettia blooms as well with the same red glitter glue and then shaped and glued them together to form my flower.
The flower box was cut with a snippet of gold paper that I had heat embossed with sparkle gold embossing powder. I wrapped a brayer with rubber bands, ran it over my versamark pad and then onto my gold foil card stock. Then heat embossed with the sparkle powder. Made this ages ago for THIS CARD, and used the leftovers today for the flower box. Because I used a snippet (and snippets for the small flowers), I'm heading over to Snippets Playground to join in the fun. :)
I stamped my sentiment in Delicata Gold ink ... love this stuff. Don't have to heat emboss ... it's shiny and sparkle all on it's own.
This is also a reminder that there's less than a week left to play along with the CAS Mix Up June Challenge - Die-cuts. Challenge closes June 24th. My CAS Mix Up card has stamping, die-cuts, punches, heat embossing, and rubber band embossing.
Thanks for coming by!
