Golden Gate Poinsettia
Card size: 4 5/8” x 6 1/8”. Make a shaped card (see video) by hanging the outer die of the Royal Gateway Die off the top fold by about 3/4". The card base will be missing the top so cut another card front with the outer die from white and glue it to the card base matching bottom and side edges. Cut a Luxe Gold decorative gate and at least 1 layer of white cardstock or white chipboard to stack under the gold to give the gate a little dimension. Glue the stack together then glue it to the card front.
Use the Small Festive Poinsettia Stamp Set, stamp using Embossing Ink (VersaMark) 2 large and 3 small poinsettias then heat embossing using gold powder. Stamp the leaf in this set and the Holly Berry Spray using VersaMark 2 times then emboss with gold powder as well. Die cut all the flowers and leaves. Use the Zig Clean Markers to color the poinsettia and the leaves then place in the mold upside down. Run the mold through your die cutting machine. For the larger flower, glue 2 of the same size poinsettia together then glue one of the size down making the flower 3 layers. Glue 3 sets of stamen together and glue the stamen to the center. Repeat for the smaller flower gluing just 2 layers together.
Arrange flowers and leaves/sprays on the golden gate then use a glue gun or heavy weight glue to fasten them to the card. Add Gold glitter dots to the leaves and stamen.
Stamp Merry Christmas using VersaMark onto vellum then emboss with gold powder. Trim as narrow as possible then glue a strip of gold (about 1/8” wide) to each side. Fishtail both ends and glue it to the card.
