Post 341: CAS Christmas Card

Hi friends !

I'd like to share a Clean and Simple Christmas Card. This was part of my DT work for PABD, all the details can be checked out here. I heat embossed the Poinsettia and sentiment in gold and watercolored the flower with Festive Berries Distress Ink refill. I wanted a deep red color and whenever I use my zig markers, the red somehow looks pinkish so in order to attain a deep, rich red I used the distress ink refill and it worked beautifully. Then added a bit of washi tape at the bottom to balance the design, a few sequins for sparkle and a few dots of red stickles on the chocolate brown die cut. They aren't visible in the photo but they add a bit of shine to the crosses all around the dome die cut. Also, I foam mounted the dome die cut and the flower :) I kept the color scheme quite festive with cream, chocolate brown, red and gold and I must say I love that color combo and will be using it again!

List of Supplies:

PABD stamp- Poinsettia
PABD die- Dome Tower Dies
Ranger's Fine Embossing Powder- Gold
Versamark Watermark Mini Inkpad 
Homemade Emboss Buddy
Gold and red sequins
Festive Berries Distress Ink Refill
