Christmas Inspiration Challenge

We were given a Christmas inspiration photo this week for the StampTV MIUM challenge

I decided to use the gold, white and turquoise colours and the poinsettias. This is what I ended up with.

I loved the sparkle of the lights on the tree, so I foiled one of the Foil-Mates with gold foil
for my background. I stamped and die cut the poinsettias, and stamped and embossed the sentiment. I used a square die but cut out a rectangle by only cutting part of the die, turning it around, moving the die and partially cutting again. I used the same technique to cut a mat for the sentiment. 

I wrapped a piece of sheer ribbon around the background and attached it to a turquoise card base. I added the matted sentiment and popped up the poinsettias with some foam squares.

I used the following supplies:
Gina K. Designs: Merry & Bright stamp set and coordinating dies
                            Christmas Joy stamp set
                            Turquoise Sea cardstock and ink
                            Swirls & Flourishes Foil-Mates
Cottage Cutz Stitched Square die set
VersaMark ink
gold foil, gold embossing powder, ribbon, foam squares and white cardstock from my stash
