Golden Poinsettia Garden

Hello, everyone! It’s Jenny here taking over the blog today with a golden sparkle & shine holiday card I created with our Poinsettia Garden Cling Background stamp and Mistletoe Kisses stamp set. This card is fairly easy & quick, and you don’t need any fancy coloring skills to create this card! I am excited to share with you how I created this card!

 

Here is the card:

  • I started the card by stamping our Poinsettia Garden Cling Background stamp on a sheet of vellum. I used heavy gauge vellum to avoid warping, as pretty much almost the whole panel had to be heat set. After stamping the background in Versamark ink, I heat embossed with gold embossing powder.
  • I colored the poinsettias with Gold Wink of Stella Brush pens. I think any gold shimmery paint would produce the same effect. Then, I filled in here and there with green and red Stickles. I also filled in the berries with gold gel pen.
  • I covered the entire front of a white A2 size card base with our Gold Adhesive Glitter paper. Then I adhered the vellum panel (trimmed slightly smaller than A2 size) flushed to right side of the card.
  • I stamped the sentiment from our Mistletoe Kisses stamp set on a strip of vellum in Versamark and heat embossed with red glitter powder. Then I adhered it on the card.
  • I wrapped gold thread around the sentiment strip and added a very thin strip of our Red Adhesive Foil Paper. I finished the card by adding some sequins from Santa’s Sneezes and Wintergreen Frost Couture mix.

    I was completely enchanted with this card. Ran to my craft room to copy it. I embossed on heavy vellum and then used my gansai gold shimmer paint to color. It looks beautiful but my vellum is super warped. I have tried a few tricks to flatten it and it is marginally better. I want to try adhering it to a white card base but am not sure the best way to adhere. Any tips would be appreciated.

      Hi Donna! So sorry about the warping. Vellum is not meant to take water, so the brush needs to be slightly damp. My wink of Stella worked nicely for this reason. To adhere the vellum, I used 1/8″ Scor-tape on the back, little pieces where it’s embossed and won’t show through. I would also recommend Stick-it product, which works wonderfully, but you must apply Stick it sheet on the entire vellum panel. Hope this helps!
