ID: MC Oct/15 - ECD - Merry Christmas - Hexagon Poinsettia card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: October 24, 2015

Elizabeth Craft Designs  (ECD) has been licensed to make dies of Suzanne Cannon's (Quietfire Design ) calligraphy. Today's card uses "Merry Christmas" (available on Quietfire Design HERE)

Love the poinsettia die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs and thought I'd use it again and try to use up some of my encyclopedia pages I have left over.... (still have a ton of them BIG GRIN).

The rubber stamp sentiment is by Quietfire Design  

 ("Merry Christmas Plain and Simple" 6pce set ); 




Side folded my white card.

Die cut the filigree part of the Poinsettia several times from white cardstock, inked with Versafine Toffee and embossed with Hot Stuff "Mirror Gold" embossing powder. Set aside. Die cut the solid part of the Poinsettia from a stack of the encyclopedia pages. Inked some of them with Distress "Bundled Sage" for the leaf section. The rest I painted in a streaky fashion with Distress daubers "Picket Fence", when dry, painted streaky again with "Barn Door". When dry, assembled the layers adding a large yellow brad through the center. Adhered them to the card front in a diamond arrangement.

Created a triangle corner cutout to use as a template and penciled in my diagonal lines for each corner. Stamped the sentiment with Versafine Black Onyx, just above the pencil lines. Cut off the corners. Inked the card edge with a Krylon Gold Leafing pen.

On the inside: I had previously made stamps from fun foam die cut with the Poinsettia dies. Stamped the filigree part with the Toffee and embossed with the gold. Inked the solid stamp with the red, misted with water and stamped.

The cardstock used for the Merry Christmas was previously made at the Paper Pastimes Pop Up as a sample using Color Burst powders on 90# cold press watercolor paper (smooth side) and sprinkled with Coarse Kosher salt and set aside to dry.

Die cut the words, inked with Versamark and embossed with UTEE.

Edges of card sponged with a dirty red sponge. Faux stitching with a Parallel Pen and Sumi ink.
