Christmas Poinsettia {Scrapy Land Challenge #31}

It's the first Wednesday of December and that means a couple things.  First of all, it's time for a new Scrapy Land Challenge and Christmas is only a few weeks away!  The theme for this challenge is Anything Goes using any brand of die that Scrapy Land sells.  There are over 40 different brands and you can view them here.

Today's card combines a couple different Die-Versions dies (Poinsettia 2 and the Merry Christmas Script die) and the white-on-white technique.  Theoretically, this should be an easy technique to create, but for some reason this particular technique takes me longer to accomplish than I think it should.

I started out by die cutting the Poinsettia 2 die several times, so that I could create layered flowers.  Before forming the flowers, I lightly spritzed them with a homemade shimmer that has a touch of gold in it.  I also added light pink gems for the centers to add a little color to the card.

The Merry Christmas sentiment was die cut from Sticker Paper by Sparkle N Sprinkle and Bridal glitter was applied to the adhesive.  The frame around the sentiment also has Bridal glitter on it.

Two different embossing folders were used for more contrast between the layers.  Spellbinders (Dainty Dots) and Sizzix (Snow Flurries) were my choices for this card.

You have until Dec 13 to visit the Scrapy Land Challenge blog and upload your project.  The winner of the challenge, chosen by the Design Team, will receive a $15 gift certificate to go shopping at the Scrapy Land store.

Such an elegant, GORGEOUS w/w card, Anne! W/W cards are more difficult for me, also, but you have carried this off beautifully! I like your little pink jewels in the flower centers, the layers of dry embossed white cardstock, and the pretty Bridal glitter (It's hard to capture that particular glitter on camera, but you certainly have! Gorgeous! hugs, de

Gorgeous card Anne! Love the pretty poinsettias with the pop of red in the centers. How did you stick the sticker paper die cut down? White on white cards are so pretty at Christmas, but I've yet to create one. You've done a fabulous job on this one.
