'tis another Poinsettia Card

I'm back with another Christmas card for a couple of challenges
My second one for CAS Christmas Card Challenge
Check out the details Here and
The  City Crafter are Celebrating
Christmas in July with Silver
so will pop this over to their Gallery.

My Christmas cards are not complete until I 
use my Spellbinder Poinsettia Die.

This one wasn't quite as quick as my previous
poinsettia card but is still a CAS style.
I cut my card stock on an angle and then
sponged some Iridescent Medium with a
piece of bubble wrap (Thanks Loll).
Love the shimmer!
I then got to that poinsettia inking 
 card stock with Coral Reef Wax 
wiping some of the colour off the top with a spotty stencil
from Kaisercraft giving it a nice effect.
I cut several flowers and glued them all together.
Behind it is some silver leaves from
Tim's Holiday Greens.
Added grey card stock and my
Merry Christmas die from Paper Smooches 
 cut from the same silver paper
as my leaves. This was the hardest part
trying to keep it all together and getting it straight.
Finished off with pearls and gems

Thanks for dropping in.
Love reading your comments.

That bubble wrap gives such a unique and fun texture, who would have thought, love the CAS design but with all those extra touches there is really so much more!

This is so elegant Ina! Love the bubble wrap design on the top of the card ... gorgeous. And that layered poinsettia is beautiful with the shaping and mix of colours along with the silver leaves and sprigs. Gorgeous design Ina! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Christmas! xx

Wow!!! The addition of the Iridescent Medium with bubble wrap is amazing! I just love the shine it gives you! I must try it! It must be wonderful IRL as it looks so amazing in the photo - so difficult to achieve usually!

I love your Iridescent Medium bubble wrap background, Ina! It's so shimmery and has a very interesting texture. And what a lovely poinsettia you created! It was worth the time, wasn't it? Thanks so much for joining us again at CAS Christmas! Hideko xx
