Hi there,

I had purchased this beautiful die from Simon Says Stamp but had not used it yet so I finally decided how I was going to use it and here's the card that I created with it. This I am entering in the current SSS Flickr challenge #6 using dies.

I first die cut a bunch of the poinsettias and then ran some gold cardstock cutting a bunch of leaves.
I layered 2 different sized die cuts to make the 3 poinsettias. I then decided to cut a panel using the curved edge die and the edges of both pieces were outlined with gold metallic ink. The top part of that panel was layered with foam dots and the bottom piece was mounted flat with the sentiment stamped on it in gold detail embossing powder. I added some gold splatters to be top piece using HA gold spray.
I mounted the poinsettias with foam dots, tucked in some gold leaves, turned up the edges of the flowers a bit and then added a metallic dot to each centre.
Thanks for stopping by to have a look and enjoy!
