Christmas Card Throwdown...November Stash Challenge 2020

I placed this graphic on my page today as this will be my last posting as a design team member with Christmas Card Throwdown.
You will still find their link on my blog and I hope to be able to participate in the future but life has gotten hectic and I need to relieve my responsibilities.
Thanks to the group as this was a wonderful team to work with!

I am also being kind of naughty on this challenge.
We were supposed to use foils or gilding flakes for this challenge.
I have trouble with foils...sadly.
I own no gilding flakes...too pricey.
So I cheated.
The base card is white card stock.
On black card stock I stamped the image from Crafter’s Companion “Poinsettia” set using Versamark ink and heat embossing it with white embossing powder.
Once cool I die cut it with the coordinating die and attached it to the base card.
On the bottoms of the base card I stamped the sentiment from Recollections “Christmas” set using Memento tuxedo black ink.
To achieve the glittery look I colored the berries with Reminisce gold gel pen then with Wink of Stella clear gloss.
I also colored the ribbons with. The Wink of Stella.

Thank you for everything and I will continue blogging so please join me in the future!

What a beautiful and elegant Christmas card! The poinsettia looks like embroidered - really a very beautiful effect! Don't worry about the gilding flakes, I didn't have any either and used ultra fine glitter instead! do what you can with what you have! ;)
In a few weeks it will be Christmas - time goes by so fast! I wish you wonderful and peaceful holidays and above all a happy and healthy New Year! Hugs, Rosi
