Merry Wishes

I’m back to traditional Christmas colours for today’s card, which features the super sweet Merry Wishes from the latest Whimsy Stamps release.  Isn’t she just the sweetest little poppet?

I made the poinsettias from red card and glitter card instead of foamiran for a change, I LOVE how these turned out.  The red card was just what I have in my stash, nothing special.  I die cut the red petals using the Lily Flower Die Set and the glitter card layers using the Build a Poinsettia Die set then spritzed the red petals with water and twisted them and allowed them to almost dry.  I then unravelled them and used a ball tool on the back of the petals onto a foam pad to get some shape.  The card holds the shape beautifully once dry, there’s no shifting these puppies!  I layered up a red set of petals, then gold then offset the final red layer and pulled some gold stamens through the centre.  I think I actually prefer the cardstock flowers to the foam!

I finished off the arrangement with some berries and leaves from the Christmas Branches die set.

The delectable paper is Christmas Jingle from Anna Marie Designs, the sentiment is from the Christmas Memories Clear Stamps set
