Holiday card series 2014 - Day 9

Today's christmas card is inspired from the Curtain call inspiration challenge - clearly christmas also playing for Sentimental Sunday's - Embossing(wet/dry) and The paper players black tie theme challenge- holiday projects that are fancy
I loved the blue green silver combination from the inspiration pic
For my card I used pti poinsettia clear stamp. Used silver embossing powder from hero arts. First embossed the poinsettia on 80lb vellum than colored on the back of vellum using copic colors. Hand cut the poinsettia and used foam tape to give dimension to it. For the background I used hero arts stencil and ranger's texture paste. Heat embossed the sentiment on a banner shaped piece and used foam tape to adhere it on the cardbase.
