Joyful Christmas

Today Chris (sis-in-law) have got together and looked at each other's swaps from Convention,
photographed the ones that the other had that we hadn't got, and generally had a relaxing morning.
Chris brought one of the goodies that she won in Prize Patrol for me to drool over,
which I dutifully did.  Boy did I want to win that Prize Patrol!
Anyway, once it becomes available I shall be wanting to do a workshop on it!!
Sorry I can't share any more information about this until it becomes available to us Demos!!
After Lunch we thought that we ought to make something, so I found one of the many photos
that I had taken of the display boards and found the card which I most wanted to make
(as I hadn't been fortunate enough to swap with it's maker).
We then set about making it - and here's our version.

The stamp set is Joyful Christmas
I stamped the poinsettia twice in Versamark on Vellum,
 then I mixed White and Iridescent Ice Embossing powder together and heat embossed.
These were fussy cut out- the top one was just the central petals.
The base card was Smoky Slate.
The embossing folder is Stylish Stripes.
I stuck strong, narrow, double sided tape across the bottom third of the card
and after removing the cover strip I applied the fabulous Silver Stampin' Glitter.
The sentiment was inked in Versamark and heat embossed with Silver embossing powder.
As I photographed this from a display board, I don't know it's origin.
If you know who made this, please email me and I will link back to the maker.
I think it's a fantastic card!
