Festive in Red and Gold
Festive in Red and Gold
Finished card size: 5 7/8 x 7”. Fold 7 1/2" x 11” white cardstock in half to make a 5 1/2 x 7 1/2” card. Place the outer die of the Teardrop Lattice Gateway Die over the left folded edge just enough so that the die does NOT cut the fold at the straight part of die. Also cut Decorative paper in the gold color with the same die twice then glue one to the card base front and the other piece on the inside (you may need to trim about a 1/16” off the left side for the inside piece to make it fit right).
Use a piece of gold decorative paper with red and green Poinsettia designs on it to cut the decorative dies of the Teardrop Lattice Gateway Die (use all parts of the die set taped together to get these 2 pieces). Glue the outer decorative die cut to the card front then pop up the inner decorative part with pop up foam strips.
Stamp all sizes of the poinsettia from Festive Poinsettia Large and Small sets using Vermillion Ink then sponge with Carnation Red Ink and Scattered Straw for the Stamen. Stamp all the leaves from both sets and the Holly Berry Sprays using Fern Green then sponge with Leaf Green. Die cut all the flowers and leaves. Sponge the flowers again on the backs and the edges with Vermillion. Place flowers and leaves in the Shaping Molds, Large and Small, to beautifully shape the flowers, stamen and leaves. Shape the Sprays from the back using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.
Glue 2 of each size poinsettia together to make flowers. Glue 2 or 3 stamen together for each flower, glue them in the centers then pierce centers of flowers and insert the yellow pearl stamen. Glitter all the flowers.
Arrange sprays, leaves and flowers and glue to the left bottom of card front then insert a few gold Rose Hip Stamen to complete the arrangement. Stamp the sentiment in Vermillion onto a decorative paper tag, die cut and tuck into arrangement.
Mix shimmer and lacquer together and paint it on all the greenery. Glitter the card base. Add a multi-loop bow to the right bottom. (the ribbon used here is seam binding dyed with Scattered Straw refill and a tiny bit of water, only enough to wet the seam binding, placed in a zip lock bag, do not rinse but dry [outside in case of dripping]) then create a bow. The color matches perfectly.
