Tattered Poinsettia

Hello, its great that you've stopped by, I hope you're all having a good weekend.  I've managed to finish another batch of  Christmas Cards using the Tattered Poinsettia die I bought couple of weeks ago and  I've cut quite a lot as I've sat watching t.v.  The DP was stamped with Versamark and then brushed with Perfect Pearls Bronz,  tag is embossed with the CB script folder and I highlighted the script with a gold ink pad, and  Iced Spruce to distress the edges.  The poinsettia was coloured with Fired Brick and Peeled paint DIs. the die cut is a little Sizzix die , quite a quick card, so I made a few.


I am entering this at:
 Pile it on - Show us your tools                                
Stamping Sensations - Christmas                            

Feel the need now to do something pretty, before I start putting the next batch together, it's surprising how much double sided tape I used while watching t.v and it doesn't take that much concentration to do  either.

It's the last of Downton tonight, so I know where I will be at 9 o'colock, wonder if there will be another 'cliff-hanger' ending.

These cards are so beautiful! Love the added gold to the embossed script - I'll keep that in mind as an idea for one of my future cards.
