Joyful Christmas Vellum Poinsettia Cards

More Christmas cards to share with you today using Joyful Christmas stamp set by Stampin' Up!



I made two of these cards as well.  I just love the poinsettia stamp on vellum with white embossing powder.  So elegant and goes with any colour scheme.  I stamped the flower twice for each card on Vellum cardstock using VersaMark ink and White Embossing Powder.  Then I cut out the full flower for one layer, and just  the center of the flower for the top layer.
The gold one is made with Champagne Glimmer Paper and Baked Brown Sugar cardstock and ink. Don't you think the Baked Brown Sugar colour turns a deep, rich gold colour when paired with the glimmer paper?  Then I made a Clay Flower and embossed it with Gold Embossing Powder.  You have to put two layers of embossing powder on the flower to give it a nice smooth, soft finish.
Then I used the Red Glimmer Paper and Real Red cardstock and ink to create the second one.  I coloured some Basic Rhinestones with a red sharpie marker for the center of the flower.

  Stamps:  Joyful Christmas, More Merry Messages
  Ink:  VersaMark, Baked Brown Sugar, Real Red
  Paper:  Whisper White, Baked Brown Sugar, Real Red, Vellum
  Other:  Simply Pressed Clay, Buttons and Blossoms Simply Pressed Clay Molds, Basic Rhinestones, Gold Embossing Powder, White Embossing Powder, red sharpie marker

Hope you are almost finished your Christmas cards, but if not I will be back again next time with another great Christmas card for you.

Happy Stampin' ....
