This card wasn’t quite what I had planned exactly but not being able to find a stamp set fixed that. I think I need to put all my Christmas crafting stuff together! Although an overhaul of the room that holds my crafty goodness is in severe need of an organizing!
I know you’ve seen the embossing diffusers before (not sure? Check out EPCC 13) but there are just so many possibilities with them! 🙂

Card Measures 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Red Card stock 5 1/4 x 4
White Card stock 5 x 3 3/4
-emboss white card stock piece using embossing diffuser (if you’re unsure how to, check out EPCC13)
-stamp sentiment in the center
-quickly sprinkle sentiment with clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool
-add embellishments

It is sometimes hard for me to leave things alone! I was tempted to do something with the embossed poinsettias but told myself to back off…it’s supposed to be a clean and simple card after all! 😉
Although if you wanted to make the card not so simple…here are the things I could do…
-apply distress ink on the embossed poinsettias
-apply embossing ink via a brayer and add clear embossing powder or UTEE, then use it as an emboss resist by using either distress inks or stains or perfect pearls or water colour
-then…I’d use some yellow stickles or small yellow pears and add them to the poinsettia centers

You just may see a similar card in future! 😉

  1. The embossing diffusers are on my (admittedly long) wishlist! Such a fabulous & elegant look 🙂
    I hear you on not being able to find stuff – in my case it’s small space filled to the brim. Bits get lost! And this is a perfect design to play with & tweak later on – you know a good one can come back & play lots of times 🙂
