Poinsettia

I wanted a simple but elegant Christmas card for a friend.

I stamped the image onto vellum, gold heat embossed it, then coloured the back of it with Copic pens.  The background is embossed, then lightly swiped with gold paste.  Gold Stickles in the flower centre.  The flower is only attached to the card in the middle.

Stamp: Kaisercraft
heat embossed gold and coloured with Copics
EF: Craft Concepts
Glitterkiss paste: golden sand
Stickles: gold
