Christmas Poinsettia

This is another card from Jayne Nestorenko's new Christmas range.  This is a beautiful stamp that can be used as either a medallion stamp or a flat stamp. 

The background lattice design was made by using a Hoogie Board and although not as quick as using an embossing folder, does mean that you can make it the size that you require and have the lattice design and small or as large as you want.

The ornament shape was made by using the largest of the Spellbinders  2011 Heirloom Ornaments.  The gold background was made by drawing round the outside of the die, the red card was made by using the die and the white was made by drawing inside the die.  Although on the workshop we cut out the white ornament and then stamped onto it, at home you could do it the other way.  The background of the stamp was coloured using Spectrum Noir pens.  I stamped the image 3 times onto red card and gold embossed.  I then cut out the images, each time with fewer petals to create the meadallion effect.  The layers were then glittered and layered  and I used gold Mica Flakes in the centre. 

The easel card was then assembled and finished off with ribbon.  I think that Jayne has really designed a wonderful stamp - especially with the foliage in the background.
