Merry Christmas Poinsettia

At Can You Handle The Pressure I think everyone knows by now
that we are an embossing FOLDER challenge and have an 'optional'
theme which is CHRISTMAS this challenge!

I purchased this Lisa Horton gorgeous 3D Poinsettia embossing folder
earlier this year after watching a youtube video of it.
It also comes with a matching die to cut out the  center Poinsettia
which is what I did with card.  Actually cut out 4 die cut pieces,
one for the underneath glitter piece, one for the entire flower and two other
pieces that I cut apart to do all the layering.
I learned watching the video to die cut the outline pieces first,
then to put them in the embossing folder to emboss,
doing it this way ensures that the embossing doesn't get squished
during the embossing process.
Look at all that gorgeous embossed detail!

Here is a better picture of the embossed piece at the bottom.

The beautiful detail of the embossed poinsettia.

This Lisa Horton EB folder makes me want to shop for more!!

You and I certainly did have similar ideas for our cards, Di. Yours is just gorgeous, and I LOVE that there is a die to go along with your poinsettia EF. Lisa Horton's designs are fantastic. There is one I have been looking for and can't find, but plenty more where that came from. You used this one so beautifully and the end result is elegant and warm nad so very Christmasy. Thank you again for your kindness, and for having me on the CYHTP team. I will be crafting for me heart and soul and I will play your wonderful challenges as much as I can. I hope you have a peaceful and beautiful Christmas and a wonderful start to the new year. Hugs, Stephanie

WowWowWowWowWOW! Now I want to shop for more, too! This is stunning! Actually, I was shopping madly trying to choose one of these LH folder and die combos for a friend's Christmas, but couldn't choose. I'll have to go back now. The black and white is amazing!

You've made one gorgeous card Diane! All those poinsettia layers just pop off the embossed background and tucking the rectangle sentiment below the flower was perfect. Thanks so much for joining us at The Flower Challenge and have a very Merry Christmas!
