Pretty Poinsettias Week with a Vintage Twist

This week the Stampendous team are featuring Poinsettias, providing you with another opportunity to start planning your holiday cards for this year!

My card features the Dreamweaver Large Poinsettia stencil, done in a modified version of the Double Glitter technique...instead of using all glitter, I've used gorgeous Copper Micro Glitter for the background, and Stampendous Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel for the poinsettia. Going along with the vintage vibe, the base card is a tan Core'dinations cardstock, machine-embossed with the Dreamweaver Damask background stencil, and sanded to reveal the design. The sentiment was also embossed in the Shabby White. Small dots of glue, sprinkled with Stamnpendous Mahogany glitter were added to the center, and the pin holding the May Arts ribbon bow, was also covered with the same glitter.
