Glimmer Poinsettia for the Merry Monday Challenge
Here's another Christmas card that I made for the Merry Monday Challenge. I actually made the focal point of this card to use for last week's challenge and didn't finish it. Good thing that I hadn't lost the poinsettia, LOL!
I fashioned this flower using Robin Merriman's tutorial. I purposely left the rest of the card neutral so the glimmer paper would really stand out. I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the 'Merry' and 'Christmas,' and added veins to the leaves using my stylus and the foam pad from my mat pack. It happened by accident, but the first line on the newsprint dsp says, "medicinal and poisonous." I don't know about the medicinal part, but aren't poinsettias poisonous?
Please let me know what you think of this card.
