Glittery Poinsettias

Hi everyone.  Making one final CAS card for the CAS Christmas July challenge - Poinsettia, before it closes in two days.

This is a QCAS (as Darnell would say ... Quick, Clean, and Simple).

I had die-cut this lovely poinsettia image (borrowed from my good friend Nancy) just over 1 year ago and finally got around to using it today. :)  I simply stamped the sentiment and heat embossed in copper, and then placed a piece of copper glitter paper behind the poinsettia aperture.  It doesn't get any easier than that ... and it's such a pretty and elegant card too. :)

Here's a close-up ...
I hope you'll join our challenge if you haven't already.  Always good to get some Christmas cards made ahead.


Stamps:  Big Scripty Greetings (Simon Says Stamp)
Paper:  White (Neenah 110 lb. card stock); Copper Glitter Paper
Ink:  Versamark
Accessories & Tools:  Poinsettia die-cut (Tim Holtz), copper embossing powder, heat tool

Challenges:

I love how the beautiful design counters the sentiment in the corners! Very elegant, my friend, and a bonus that it's QCAS!

This is incredibly beautiful with the glitter paper. A friend hooked me on these negative dies since they are easy and so versatile. I know I'll be hunting that one! Simple yet so elegant!

A striking card, Loll. Simple yet with big wow factor with the copper glitter paper and that stunning die cut. I am going to focus on QCAS for doing rest of Christmas cards(!)

Love that term 'QACAS', and it looks anything but! The copper effect was just a brilliant idea to show off this poinsettia corner - it's beautiful. TFS & Hugs

Swoon!! I could make and look at coppery cards the rest of my life and die happy! This stunning QACAS card will definitely be CASEd, Lolly! I love it!! Hugs, Dolly

Another excellent card in your performance, Loll. The glitter color is amazing, beautiful copper and so nicely composed with fondness. This openwork poinsettia pattern looks wonderful.
Hugs,
