Emboss resist background with vellum poinsettias card

This card is using the Emboss resist technique once again, I am going to stamp poinsettias and mistletoe stamps on half of a front card panel with White embossing powder and also some of the largest poinsettia flowers onto vellum.  I cut these out with the matching full petal die. I then blended red distress ink over the stamped panel, going from dark at the outside edge and then lightening the blending towards the middle of the card panel.  

Once I have the blending finished I can trim the panel to fit my card base.  I then stamped the sentiment towards the bottom and to the right of the card, leaving enough space for the vellum poinsettias. 

I had intended to just use the single petals of the poinsettia, but they were a bit lost on the background, so I went with using two layers of the vellum petals, and liked that much better.  I finished off by putting a trio of white flatback pearls into each of the centres to finish the card off.  

Here is a video on how I made the card

This card can be done with other Christmas stamps instead of the poinsettias, and is not necessarily a Christmas card only, you could use other flower stamps and make any other kind of card.  I hope it has given you some inspiration.
Happy card making
