Festive Flower Builder Card

Hi Everyone! Thank you for coming by and having a look at today’s creation!
This gorgeous Christmas Card was inspired by #GDP066  sketch Challenge and #CTC Christmas card challenge.

I honestly LOVE how this turned out!  I used the festive flower builder to cut out the pointsettia flowers from white vellum.
(If you are making this yourself remember you need to cut the whole punch twice, then two more medium leaves and four more large leaves)

I used my bone folder to add some viens to the leaves, I then squeezed out some of my clear wink of stella onto a clear block and using my dauber I mixed cherry cobbler with it and sponged onto the leaves.

The center of the flower was done with crushed curry with gold wink of stella over the top and a gold metallic star enamel to finish it off.

I decided to use the sparkle embossing folder to add some texture to the background and used the same cherry cobbler dauber lightly over the raised areas.
The sentiment comes from the Christmas pines stamp set and was cut out with the new stitched framelits dies.  Finally it was attached with some gold bakers twine and mounted on  cherry cobbler base.
