Antique Poinsettia

Antique Poinsettia Colored In


I’m featuring The Antique Poinsettia again because it’s a different take on the stamped image than my October 4th card.  I love the die cuts that go with this wood stamp.  It cuts nice and close, perfect for me.  I rarely use stenciling and I’m not sure why because I have some stencils I just love.  I thought the background color was more of a modern take on green.   I also used the outer layer as leaves, where I used all the layers as flower parts before.    The background is the same color, but deepened in the two corners.   Have fun with your layering.

I thought a close-up might be nice so you can see the silver embossing and the Nuvo Crystal Glitter Drops.  I purchased the Glitter Drops from A2Z, so she might still have some left if you’d like to try them.  You can see how cleanly the dies cut here too.  As I said, I love the close cut.  I’m at A Bit of This and That.
