Joanna Sheen's RHS 'Poinsettia' Stamp Set


Hello folks!
I'd like to share the card I made using Joanna Sheen's RHS 'Poinsettia' rubber stamp set. The card shape is very simple to make. It's just a square card with the two bottom corners folded up to create the pocket. I covered to two flaps with Kraft card and then embellished it with some gold foil board that I had cut to shape with some scalloped edge scissors and embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. The Holly paper that I have used is printed out from a Crafter's Companion Christmas CD Rom.
I used my Nestabilities to cut the scalloped circle and circle that I embossed and inked around the edge.
I stamped the single flower onto some velvet paper using Stazon ink. Cut them out and used them as corner embellishments on the main card. I added gold stickles to the centre of the flowers.
I stamped and embossed the main image a few times and coloured with a mixture of Prisma Colour pencils and Copic markers (as you can see this card really 'evolved' while I was making it. In other words I kept changing my mind) For the final layer on the flowers I stamped, again, onto the velvet paper with Stazon. I adhered all the layers with Pinflair glue gel with gave added lots of lovely dimension.
Hope you like today's offering :o)
Ciao for now!

Another fabulous card Sandra. You have really brought these stamps to life and given them a 'modern' twist. I remember using that card fold a while ago it's a lot of fun as the pocket can be used for so many ideas. Thank you for reminding me of it. :)
Love your colours and your style.
