Happy Holidays

Hello Crafty Friends!  Tracy here with a floral holiday project for today featuring a few new products.  So let's just get right to the details!

To begin my project, I die cut the new LDRS Layered Poinsettia dies twice from watercolor paper and added color using brush markers.  I wet the pieces with a water brush and dropped in the color moving it around with the water brush until I was satisfied with the colors.

I set those aside to dry while I worked on the rest of the card.  Can I just say that I love coverplate dies?!  They just add so much texture and dimension to your projects with very little effort!  And .. white on white looks so elegant in my opinion!  Anyhoo, I used the LDRS Modern Geometric Coverplate II to cut a panel of white cardstock.  I also used the LDRS Modern Geometric Coverplate III to cut another white panel.  I adhered both of those panels together using liquid glue.

I stamped the Happy Holidays sentiment, which is from the LDRS Potted Poinsettia set, using watermark ink and heat set it using gold embossing powder. Now that the die cut poinsettia pieces were dry, I glued the layers together, putting the darker layer on the bottom.

There was some playing around with placement of the flowers, leaves and sentiment, but once that was figured out, I adhered the flowers using foam tape, tucking the green leaves under those and securing with glue.  I felt that the card needed some other gold, so I die cut a leaf from mirror gold cardstock and tucked those in as well.

I was now finally able to trim down the sentiment and added that to the card using foam tape for dimension.  I adhered the whole panel to the card base and added some gold embellishments as well to bring it all together.

That does it for this project!  I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty!  I definitely want to try these dies again with more traditional holiday colors!  Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
