Part of the challenge is that your flowers should be part of the image used, not just your embellishment. I am slowly getting into Christmas crafting mode so when I saw the poinsettia image from our sponsor Delicious Doodles, I had the idea for this card right away. Don't you love it when that happens!
I started with the poinsettias which took the most time. Since I knew I wanted to use a form of paper tole, and I wanted two flowers so I printed the image six times. I coloured the images and trimmed them out, making each level slightly smaller. I layered each level of petals with foam tape, then added some Sakura glitter pen.
I decided I wanted to layer cream on cream, so I cut my pieces accordingly and dry embossed the main panel. I sprayed all pieces with gold mist, and inked the edges of the embossing and the sentiment piece with creamy brown.
I added ribbon to the main panel and adhered the main panel to the card base with foam tape. At this point I added a bow with separate pieces of ribbon and a wooden die cut snowflake that had also been sprayed with gold mist.
The sentiment was heat embossed in gold and also foam taped to the card front.
I kept the inside simple by just heat embossing another sentiment.
