I heat embossed the poinsettia (Winter Woodland, Winnie & Walter) twice in gold embossing powder (Wow) onto vellum and added colour to the back using a red and green alcohol marker. I snipped off a few leaves from my green version and adhered them to the back of my red poinsettia using multi medium matte. For my front panel (Neena solar white), I die cut the smallest of the two faceted panels from the True Multifaceted Border Cutaways (W&W). Next, I added a small strip of thick paper using gilding glue, put the die cut in place and then added my gilding flakes when the glue was tacky. I stamped the sentiment (Happy Christmas, W&W) using green ink before mounting the panel onto my A2 card base (Fog gray cardstock, Simon Says Stamp), and then adhered my poinsettia using some clear foam tape (Kool Tak). To finish off, I added a few gold sequins using glue dots.
