Sunday Christmas Card Challenges #37

It's time for this week's Christmas Card Challenge.  We have a photo challenge for you and I'm looking forward to seeing how it inspires you.  For me, it was all about texture.  I pulled the colors from the photo and added the texture using my Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, Boho Chic Embossing Folder and some die-cute felt embellishments.  In the center of my snowflake poinsettia is a little heart brad that I covered with Dazzling Details to give it some sparkle.  I spritzed the snowflake and poinsettia die-cuts with Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist them a little bit of sparkle, too.

Here is a close-up of the snowflake poinsettia.  It shows the shimmer just a wee bit better.

Stamp Set:  White Christmas (sentiment); Ink:  Crumb Cake; Card Stock:  Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Whisper White Thick; Accessories & Tools:  Banner Punch, Boho Chick Embossing Folder, Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, Snowflake Felt Die-Cut (unknown), Poinsettia Felt Die-Cut (unknown), Heart Brad (unknown), Dazzling Details, Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist (Creative Imaginations), SNAIL Adhesive, Dimensionals, Stampin' Trimmer, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine.  All Stampin' Up! products unless noted otherwise.
