Poinsettias from an Embossing Folder

Ann here with a card I made using a gorgeous Darice Mosaic Poinsettia embossing folder which is available at the Dies R Us Store.

Darice - Embossing Folder - Mosaic Poinsettia

Here's another photo without all the shine from the camera:

To make the card, I embossed on white card stock.  Then I just painted it all in using distress inks and a paint brush.  To give the sparkle, I brushed on some Ceramcoat Sparkle Glaze paint by Delta Creative.  This added a clear iridescent sparkle and has tiny pieces of glitter in it.  Once that was dry, I manually cut around the embossing and adhered it to  piece of linen white card stock.  By cutting out the image, I didn't have to be real careful trying to stay within the lines when painting it in.

Since the card is going to be mailed, I wanted to keep the flower centers flat and not use any gems which would likely put holes in the envelope or fall off of the card.  I colored the centers with Smooch pearlized gold accent paint.  The top panel is layered on top of a piece of  gold Shimmer Sheetz.

I can see so many more possibilities with this embossing folder.  To see all the embossing folders available at Dies R Us, click here.

  2. Your use of embossing folders always leaves my jaw hanging! LOL Ann, this is an incredible card, and all from an embossing folder! BEAUTIFULLY done. I should try that as well - it's like doubling your stamping stash to use the folders this way. And your painting is fantastic! Thank you for sharing the technique, Ann. Hoping you are doing well and enjoying yourself! love, de
