A Christmas Card created with the new Heartfelt Stamps and Dies

Good Morning Crafters, I absolutely adore Heartfelt Dies and Stamps and this months release was the new Poinsettia design, and I have used the poinsettia stamp on parchment paper and then used white embossing powder to emboss them, afterwards I cut them out with the dies that come with the set. To colour them I used the Viva 3d paint on the back of the petals and leaves.
The main card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of red card and a second one out of green, both these were embossed using a Sue Wilson holly embossing folders. I then layered them up and with one of the card toppers from the Poinsettia paper pad I layered this on top of both the layers.
I used some of the layered up poinsettia petals to create the four flowers you can see, and I placed them around the two edges at the bottom and one in the top right hand corner. The final thing was the sentiment that also came in the paper pad, this was layered up again on red and green card and placed in the top right hand corner. I also used red PVA glue to create the red spots around the edge, but Im afraid the glue is a bit lumpy and it was difficult to get a perfect dot with the bottle.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Hi Shirley,
What A Truly Beautiful Card You've Created And Shared With Us Today
I'm So Loving Seeing Your Stunning Cards And Now Beautiful Part Of Your Blogs, You Are Extremely Talented Lady,
"I Hope You Don't Mind Me Asking Where You Purchase Your Copics From"
I Used To Purchase Mine From "My Craft Leader Whom Is A Very Wonderful Lady"
A Little More Expensive But I Understand That Apart From When I Bought The Pen Holders
And Was Charged £19:99 And I Needed Four Then I Saw Them On "Create And Craft For £9:99"
I Also Checked Out The Internet And The Prices Were All £9:99 So I Felt A "Little Hurt" Over That!
And I Love Going To Her Classes She Seems To Have Stopped Getting Them In Which Is So Annoying
When I Mentioned It Last Week Both Her And Her Husband Said Why Didn't I Try This Other
Product But I've Been Using Them For Over Five Years Now, And I've Attended Workshops With
Bev Rochester And The Lili Of The Valley Team Also Jaquie Dennis, It Was A Great Day At There
Shop In Leeds. I'm Not Willing To Change My Colouring Pens For Something Else Also My Wonderful
Craft Leader Was The One That Introduced Me To Copics And Has Helped Me With My
Blending Etc, I Assure You This Isn't A Moan It's Just Hopefully To Find Another Copic Supplier
I Will Still Continue To Go To My Classes I Purchase The Sketch Pens Rather Than The Copic Ciao
Thanks For Listening And Sharing Your Terrific Cards With Us I'm Thrilled Once Again I've Found Your Blog.
Take Care
Love And Hugs
From Sam xxx

Lovely festive card. I think you may have entered the wrong Karleigh Sue Challenge though as you have added it to our Sexy July challenge with the theme ' Baby it hot out here'. We have a Christmas in July challenge also running, so you may want to double check your entry.

Absolutely gorgeous Shirley... Oh my goodness but I do love those wonderful flowers. I've been out if the loop too long as I haven't even heard of using parchment paper let alone embossing on it. WOW !!! I'm totally impressed with everything on this amazing card.
Hope all is well with you ....
Hugs, Janie
