glittered poinsettia

i might have gone a little crazy with the sparkle on this one but i love glitter!
-i started with a 3.5 x 5 panel of solar white and stamped the pine boughs in 2 shades of green along the top. this was the first time i'd used lawn fawn inks and i really liked them. the colors are pretty and they stamp crisp & evenly.

-after i had my pine boughs, i cut a 3.5 x 5 rectangle of of double-sided adhesive and covered the panel. then i removed the adhesive backing and covered it in glitter!!! i adhered my glittered panel to a 3.5 x 5 solar white card.

-on another piece of solar white i stamped the poinsettia, holly and pinecone from the essentials by ellen clear stamp mistletoe & holly set. i decided to carefully watercolor the poinsettia, since i stamped in with the non-permanent lawn fawn dye inks. and i used delicata for the berries.

-once the stamped images were dry, i die cut them with the coordinating holly & mistletoe dies.

-i stamped a little sentiment from the essentials by ellen clear stamp merry & bright set and hand cut a little fishtail flag end.

-i used glossy accents to adhere my die cuts to the glittered surface. and of course i added a few sequins.

thanks for stopping by!
