Brightly Gleaming DSP, Poinsettia Petals and Ornate Layers

Hello - welcome to my blog

I'm back to share two Christmas cards featuring some of the beautiful Brightly Gleaming specialty designer series paper. It's a returning favourite from last Christmas - there are 12 sheets of 12" x 12" paper; 2 of 6 double sided and one side has gorgeous copper foil accents. 
I used two of Ornate Layers dies; sentiments from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set and a couple of the dies from the co-ordinating Poinsettia Dies. At the moment you can buy Poinsettia Petals as a bundle and save 10%.  I forgot the Copper Emboss powder has retired, which is really sad! 
Card 1:
  • Cut Pretty Peacock card @ 14.8cm x 21cm and scored @ 
  • Cut Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP @ 10cm x 14.3cm and glue to the front of the card base
  • Cut Very Vanilla card @ 10cm x 14.3cm
  • Cut the larger label in Pretty Peacock card using Ornate Layers die
  • Stamp Merry Christmas in Versamark on Very Vanilla, heat emboss in copper (retired) and cut label using Ornate Layers die and glue to larger label before adding to base with dimensionals
  • Cut 2 x sprigs in Copper foil and add behind labels with mini glue dots
  • Cut 6 x Very Vanilla and 2 x Pretty Peacock small flowers with Poinsettia dies
  • Glue flower pieces together and add around the labels with dimensionals
  • Glue copper sequins (retired) to centre of the flowers
  • Stamp sentiment from Pointsettia Petals in Pretty Peacock on Very Vanilla and glue to inside.
Look how lovely that foil accent is and how much detail you get with those lovely dies.

For the card below, the sentiment is from Wrapped in Christmas - it is made in the same way as above except the larger label is cut from Night of Navy card.
