I have been enjoying making my Christmas cards this year.
So many beautiful dies and stamps to work with.
The only problem is choosing which ones!

I saw this brand  new, just released stamp set from JustRite
called Multi-Step Poinsettia and knew it would be fun to work with!

The set comes with a number beside each stamp,
making it easy for you to stamp by number,
basically allowing you a fool proof layering of stamps.

I stamped myself a template of sorts first,
as I wanted to make sure when I stamped it on card stock,
I had it in the proper arrangement of top of the flower and the bottom.
Now I can just look at my sample and know which is up and which is down
I hope this makes sense, but I just didn't want to stamp the base
and then have my flower upside down.

I stamped the Poinsettia in two different colors of reds,
and the leaves and veins in two colors of greens.
A Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen
was used to give a bit of sparkle to the flower veins.

The background paper is from Authentique Believe 6 x 6 paper pad.

I die cut the pattern you see on white card stock using

The sentiment is from the same Poinsettia set,
stamped in VersaMark, then embossed with Ranger Embossing Tinsel.

A bit of sparkle was added with Silver Rock Candy.

Thank you for visiting with me today!

Pretty poinsettia and interesting die cut background! I had to go look at the die set to understand how it works. Love your sparkles and jingle bell, too!
