Poinsettia Die Card

I recently picked up the Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia die and the embossing folder that matches the die. Here is what I did with it.

I started with a cream colored card base cut and scored to 4 1/4" X 5 1/2". I added a red mat cut to 4" X 5 1/4" and a patterned paper mat cut at 3 3/4" X 5". The patterned paper is from an Echo Park paper pad.

I ran my poinsettia die through my eBosser and cut the flower layers out of white card stock. I then inked them using the Festive Berries Distress Ink and Peeled Paint for the leaves. I used some Tarnished Brass distress stain for the flower center. Once I had them all inked and allowed them to dry for a few minutes I embossed them with the embossing folder and my eBosser. I just love how the flower looks after it is embossed. I will say that the flower is fairly fragile once it is embossed and I did tear off a leaf but just glued it to the back of the flower where it was supposed to go. Once I had my flower all put together I sprayed it lightly with some Gold Glitter Dust. It is really pretty in person.

I stamped my sentiment with some Memento Lady Bug red ink.
