Winter White Challenge by Flourishes

Once again Flourishes has a challenge which as the winter snow continues to fly, let’s wash our cards and creations with white! Show off a little pop of color, but make sure the overall feeling is white! Here is my card I used white metallic cardstock then layered with baby blue metallic paper then used light yellow metallic paper cut it out using Spellbinder's Poinsettia Frame S5-018 and embossed the frame. I adhered it to the baby blue paper using foam tape to raise it. Then I cut out leaving a blue halo where the blue ribbon was being threaded thru to the top and tied into a bow. To make the yellow frame fit inside and to show some of the blue I trimmed off the embossed line that is left after you emboss it thru your die cut machine.
I stamped "Merry Christmas" from the set Santa, I Believe using black Crafter's ink and embossed it using Ranger's Gold Tinsel embossing powder. The Poinsettia is stamped using White Crafter's ink on Shimmery paper and embossed using the same embossing powder. Some of the leaves were cut so that you could pop them up. The extra petals that come with the set were embossed 3 times each. The image was pop up using Stampin'Up dimensionals. The petals were painted with Stampin'Up frosted white shimmer paint to make stand out. Then I added 6 basic pearls from Stampin'Up!
