enjoy the beauty...

Hello friends!!!  Can't believe it is already December and that Christmas is just a few weeks away!  Rosemary here with a Christmas card that I made using the newly release (and absolutely gorgeous) Poinsettia dies.  I LOVE poinsettias so I was so excited to get this new die set!! 
When I started my card I knew I wanted to do some shiny and sparkly with the dies and as I was doing some purging of my scrap paper I came across this beautiful red foil cardstock.  I then found a scrap of some green glitter cardstock, as well as a scrap of gold glitter cardstock and the ideas began to flow!!  I found some patterned that paired nicely with the glitter cardstocks and I got to work.  The poinsettia can be layered multiple times, but the clean and simple gal in me went with die cutting the red foil once each with the large and medium dies.  The green glitter was then die cut with the largest die for the leaves.  I die cut the patterned paper with the large tag die from the Minnie Pearl Tag set and adhered it to a panel die cut with the Stitched Dot Rectangle dies.  The sentiment is from the Let It Snow stamp set and was stamped using a really dark brown ink.  I assembled the poinsettia by adhering the large red foil and green glitter die cuts together and the medium red foil and the flower center (die cut from the gold glitter) together using glue.  Once both groupings were dry they were adhered together using foam take, adhered to the tag and a gold glitter enamel dot was added to the center.  I added a bow tied with thin red and green hemp twine to finish things off.   I'm going to add this to Lori's Visions of Sugarplums challenge.
