Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without the beautiful Poinsettia radiating that warm red and vibrant green which represent the true colours of this coming Season. This card uses the colours and image of this plant. I started with a square Kraft Card Base and cut a mat out of Christmas Carol musical printed paper. I also cut a piece of red card and matted this on some green card. Onto this I stamped random snowflakes in black archival ink. This was applied as shown centrally over the music paper.
The central banner was made from 3 mats in green, red and kraft. The kraft layer was stamped in archival black with a double chevron stamp. I applied some white Posca pen to highlight the chevron. This was adhered over the first mats,
The Poinsettia image was cut from some printed paper and the central bit highlighted with Glossy Accents. This was applied on foam pads to add depth. The sentiment was stamped on kraft card, edged with red alcohol marker and stuck into place to finish.
