GDP316 Case the Designer

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  I am playing along with the Global Design Project today, which is to CASE the designer Stesha! 

Wow, the original card was just beautiful and I was inspired by the colors and the nature theme, so I went with that, using the Poinsettia Petals for my Christmas card! Here we go:

I started by running a piece of Merry Merlot through the Timeworn Type embossing folder, then distressing it a bit and actually separating it into two layers so it would be thinner to layer on my Crumb Cake card.  I stamped images from Poinsettia Petals, coloring my flower with a Blend and adding a gold foil center, then stamping & diecutting leaves from Garden Green and Soft Seafoam.  It still looked a little bare, so I added some berries, stamped in Crumb Cake and some Glimmer paper greenery and berries as well.  It all went on a circle of Crumb Cake.

I stamped a sentiment from Christmas to Remember on a strip of Crumb Cake, embossed it with the same folder and also separated it so make it flexible so I could pop it up a bit.  The final addition was a little Linen Thread bow.  I usually do things a little more clean, but I do love vintage and distressing, so this was fun to make as well!  I appreciate your popping in today!  Enjoy it and be blessed!

What a fabulous CASE - I don't think I've made a poinsettia card yet this season! Beautiful.
