Antique Poinsettia and Big Scripty Holiday Christmas Card

I love Hero Arts Antique Poinsettia Stamp and Die because the die cut multiple layers of the same image to give a beautiful layered image.

The image from this stamp set was stamped three times.  Once on green cardstock and two times on red cardstock with VersaMark Ink and then heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  Using the matching dies the full image, which includes the leaves was cut from the green cardstock.  The flower is cut twice, once with the die cutting the entire flower, and a second time with a die cutting only the center layer of the flower.

A rectangle of Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock was die cut using a a My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX.  Next a Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Scalloped Rectangle was embossed using the Big Shot and a Spellbinders Silicon Mat, which added a beautiful dimension to the card front.

The poinsettia image was placed on the rectangle to determine where to stamp the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Big Scripty Holiday Greetings in VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with the same gold embossing powder.  The green leaves die cut was adhered to the upper right corner of the rectangle with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was used to adhered each of the flower layers together.
