I used the sketch from this week's Freshly Made Sketches - FMS#207 for the layout, although I turned it through 90°. As the card features a poinsettia, I'm also submitting it to Happy Little Stampers October Christmas Challenge - HLSOctX.
I used some design paper in traditional red and green to make the background. I stamped the poinsettia three times - on vellum, red design paper and green DP - embossing them all with clear powder and then cut out the various layers. I used vellum for the largest layer and added some colour to the back of the image with a red Copic marker. I used dimensional gel to adhere each layer, to give a little dimension. I added some sparkle to the top two layers with a clear Wink of Stella brush. I finished the front with a simple Christmas greeting. On the inside I made a mat layer from design paper and added another poinsettia and a greeting to the white panel.
