Hi, everyone! I’m back with another quick holiday card using our Holiday Love Poinsettia and Glass Windows Background Stamp.

Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube Channel for more inspiration! I update our channel on a weekly basis!

I started off by rose gold heat embossing our Holiday Love Poinsettia. Then I painted the cluster image using Ken Oliver Color Bursts (Alizarin Crimson, Orange, Sap Green and Turquoise ).

Next I white heat embossed our Glass Windows Background Stamp onto watercolor paper and applied a Sap Green wash onto the embossed panel. I added Terre Vert color burst to the windows/boxes of the design while the Sap Green wash was still wet. Then I added some additional Sap Green and Turquoise to the panel to add a bit of variation to my background.

Once my panel was dried, I die cut our poinsettia cluster with the coordinating die. I also used the largest die from our Double Stitched Rectangle Small Die collection to cut the background into a panel slight smaller than A2 size.

I’ll be quite honest here. After I finished painting my green windowed panel, I almost scrapped the background. I wasn’t in love with it. This background looked amazing when painted with prussian blue so I thought the technique would look great with green on my holiday card. At this point, I decided to push through it and just use the panel since I had already created it. To tone down the business of the bright green background, I used smaller stitched rectangular panel as a point to ground my poinsettia cluster. It totally worked! It made the background work. I’m so happy I didn’t scrap the green background.

I adhered the green windowed panel onto an A2 side folding base, then I adhered the smaller white stitched panel onto the green panel. Next I stamped my sentiment (which is from the Holiday Love Poinsettia set) onto the white panel using our Caviar Hybrid Ink. Next I popped up my cluster with some dimensional foam tape and completed my card by adding some Glass Slippers sequins over the entire front of my card in visual triangles.

That’s all from me for this post! Thanks for stopping by!!
