My Daughter's Card for Grandma - a Jumbo Poinsettia


See this?  

Stampendous's JUMBO POINSETTIA 

Now see this......!

Here is another card made from Stampendous's Jumbo Poinsettia Stamp [shown above].  Their "over-sized" stamps are the best for embossing purposes as well as for colouring!

So, my daughter combined the two methods and created with this lovely card for her grandma! 

 I especially love the soft palette. 
{ignore my name on photo - i label them this way for my blog purposes} 



The stamp was embossed in Martha Stewart's SILVER Embossing Powder, and the image coloured with Copic BG72 ice Ocean and G21 Lime Green; and Stampin' Up's Tempting Turquoise Marker. A Colourless Blender was used to make some texturing effects - looks a bit like raindrops. 

 Using Stampin' Up's Label Framelits was also a stroke of genius on her part - they provided a background setting, a mini-label greeting - AND - a stencil for sponging inky accent colour. A Spellbinders Accent die {sorry,name excapes me!}..adds some lacy texture behind the larger Label backing the poinsettia. I like the fact she only used 3 points - different! Of course, we all love bling around here {in fact, I often have found my gems in her bedroom after she's done her nail art - ahem! }...so its glitter and gems to finish the beautiful flower.

But - the fun part, is that she stamped the greeting on a small sized Label framelit, and along with ribbon and twine placed it in the card's interior - it's a hanging decoration!!!  Cute :)



On top of that, to make it extra special, my daughter decorated the envelope {front and inside flap} using some scrap wrapping paper we saved. Kudos for recycling!!



Whew....that's using everything you've got for a card such as this!  Beautiful!
