clean and simple merry

Hey everyone!! Hope you are having a wonderful Monday!! Todays cards are brought to you by this weeks Clean and Simple sketch, make sure to head on over there and check it out for sure!!!

This card came together pretty quickly. I first started off by die cutting out the poinsettias. Once that was done I then stamped the image onto the die cut. At first that was my only plan for the card but I thought it needed a little more detail to it. So I decided to stamp the larger poinsettia imagine first in green to act as leaves behind the die cut image. Once they were stamped I then added clear wink of stella to all the flowers and small pearl just for some detail! I used some foam tape popped the flowers on top of the green stamped image. For the sentiment I die cut merry out of gold foil paper. I just loved the shine of it. Once that part was done I couldn't decide if I wanted to mount the card front onto some more gold foil paper to match or a different colour. I flipped flopped a lot but so happy I went with black and let the words shine on their own!! I also added some ink of stella to the black outline to pull it all in with sparkle!!! 

I really hope you enjoy todays card and please make sure to head on over to the Clean and Simple blog, we would LOVE to see your take on this weeks sketch!!!
