Gold Poinsettia 04686
For my first card, I used the beautiful Poinsettia Ornament along with the Matting Circles dies, Peaceful Poinsettia dies, Circle Ornament dies, Doily dies, Vintage Flourish Pattern dies and the greeting from the Christmas Pattern Ornaments set. I gold embossed three poinsettia ornaments, carefully colored them with Copics, die cut one full ornament and fussy cut the poinsettias of the two others. A pink layer was die cut as well as a shimmer pink doily to back it. The ornament topper and some of the poinsettias were die cut out of gold and a couple more poinsettias out of pink.

The greeting was also gold embossed, die cut and added under the ornament. The large pink layer was die cut out of pink using the Vintage Flourish Pattern die. Only the border shows, but I like the way the stitch pattern looks around the edges. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.

On my second card, I used the beautiful Autumn Tree set along with the Elegant Ovals dies and Rustic Beauty Paper. After stamping the tree on cream and coloring it, I die cut it and the greeting which was stamped on a separate piece of cream. A larger elegant oval die was used to cut the backing layer behind the greeting out of the rustic paper. I used a kraft knife to cut around the top of apple basket part of the image to insert the greeting layer. The edges were sponged & I also used a Copic to color the embossed edges.

    OK< now that you have changed my mind about Christmas colors, where do I go from here?? I have always been a staunch believer in Red, Green, Gold and maybe some white! But you have blown me away with the pink!!! I can't wait to make my first PINK Christmas card!! I feel like a new person! I might even put up a pink Christmas tree!!! This is great. Merry Christmas!!

  25. Beautiful cards using the October Release! Love the gold embossing and added texture to the top card, fabulous coloring on the Autumn Tree!

  26. Julie, both cards are wonderful. I love the look of the die cut wood behind the sentiment on the Fall card. The Christmas card is stunning. I love the colors and the embossed/layered poinsettia.
