ID: MC Nov/15 - Quill - Side Easel Poinsettia - Our Hearts Grow Tender card
size: 6"w x 5"h 

Created: November 28, 2015

I got a bunch of new Quietfire Design Xmas stamps and they are so gorgeous. This is the 2nd card I made with them...

The rubber stamp sentiment, quote & poinsettia stamps are by Quietfire Design  

("Merry Christmas Poinsettia" 2pce set); ("Our Hearts Grow Tender..." 2pce set); 


Scored and folded my cream toned side easel card. Cut a piece of decorative gold printed Kraft cardstock and adhered to front. Adhered a piece of pink/purple variegated Sari ribbon.

Stamped the poinsettia using Versamark on 90# watercolor paper, smooth side, and embossing with white embossing powder. Misted the paper and sprinkled Color Burst (Merlot, Alizarin Crimson) and misted a bit more. Dried. Painted in the negative spaces of the flourishes using QoR gold paint. Trimmed down and edged with a Krylon gold leafing pen. layered on to a pink cardstock and cut a 1/8" border around the edges using a layering ruler. Adhered to card front.

Added the pearl flourishes. Stamped the sentiment using Versafine Black Onyx, clear embossed on white cardstock. Trimmed down and sponged with a dirty pink sponge. Adhered to card front.

On the floor: adhered my various quilled elements. The flowers were made from gold edged encyclopedia pages. Adhered the Sari bow using a glue gun. 

Stamped the quote on to tissue paper using the black and clear embossed. Used a wet paintbrush and moistened around the quote and then gentle tore around it. Adhered to floor using a glue stick. Adhered the author separately (not enough room...)
