Hi everyone! It’s Cha here! For today’s card, I’m up at A Blog Named Hero to share a card that I made using one background that was released some time ago and the poinsettia die cut that was released in the winter catalog last year (2019). Remember that I do not have vintage products as I’m new in this world of cardmaking. Joining us this challenge, you have the chance to win some prizes! We’re waiting for your cards!
First of all, I started making a background. I picked a 4,25 by 5,5-inch Nautical Premium Cardstock and stamped the Festive Bauble Bold Prints with Navy Mid-tone Shadow ink. Then, I sprayed some gold spray to give the card a little bit of festive mood. Later, I wanted to highlight the baubles and colored some of them with Midas Touch Aqua Shimmer Pen. I trimmed the sides of this panel 0,5 inches because I wanted to create a gold frame around it.
Later, using the Sidekick die cutting machine, I die cut the pieces from Paper Layering Poinsettia die set using Dove Premium Cardstock. I did not color them in a fancy way. I just colored the petals and the leaves with Copic Sketch markers. I used the following colors:
When I finished coloring all the die-cuts, I added some liquid glue in the edges of the petals and the leaves so that I could add some gold glitter to them. I let all the pieces aside until they were completely dry before I started to assemble them.
I picked the background that I had created before adding the sentiment at the bottom of the card. I used the sentiment from the stamp set Color Layering Christmas Tree. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Gold Glitter Embossing Powder.
Finally, I assembled every piece of the poinsettia using the Precision Glue and added it to the card. I adhered the card on a piece of mirror gold cardstock that I have in my stash and mounted on a White Side Folded Card. To embellish this card, I just added some yellow dots to the center of the flower, using the Yellow Lacquer Pen that came with one of the My Monthly Hero kit (February 2020) although you can use some NUVO drops.
And that’s it! This is the card for today! I hope you feel inspired to join us in this challenge before it finishes. Remember that you can participate until July 10th!
If you are interested, I also write all the posts in Spanish (see HERE).
Thank you so much!
