Golden glittery poinsettia ...

I'm still in full swing making my Christmas projects and also playing with the wonderful range of Polkadoodles Christmas stamps. I just couldn't resist using the Christmas Poinsettia again but this time I have gone for a gold/cream look to the flower ...

My base card is actually a sizzix die I have had for eons and I thought it be great to show off the poinsettia and also the other flourish dies - which are from Polkadoodles. I've stamped and coloured the poinsettia with Nuvo embellishment mousse in Indian Gold, layered the design three times, finishing with a decorative button.

I've added some glittery die cuts, a few metallic and then some green ones too. A random sprinkling of Nuvo Crystal Drops to bring in a little red to make the image 'pop'. The sentiment is from Polkadoodles Christmas Wreath stamp set.

The wonderful glitter card I have used is from the Craft Perfect range, (from Tonic Studios) and it cuts like a dream with no shedding of glitter what so ever. I'm not normally a glitter person per-say as the 'stuff' we use in school is so chunky and rough; it's just plain horrible. Am slowly coming around to glitter but that's because I am now using the 'picker' stuff .. lol!
