A Christmas card to share today - made for someone in America - can only hope it arrived with the flower (and the bead centre) intact!
I used linen textured card as the base.
The gold embossing was done with Cling Film (thanks Loll!!). I am still being too heavy handed though I think when pressing the scrunched up cling film onto the embossing pad.... but this was done last minute (as I had forgotten the post date for the USA) so just had to go with it as it was.
The poinsettia is by Penny Black from their Wonder Collection. Painted with Fired Brick, Barn Door and Festive Berries Distress Inks before fussy cutting.
I added some seed beads into the centre.
The sentiment was stamped in Metallic Gold ink and is also from Penny Black.
I hope everyone has not worn themselves out in the pre Christmas madness - if you can spare a couple of minutes - sit down, turn on your speakers and listen to this - one of my fave renditions of this Christmas song - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tekN9NtGXOc
