I’m working my way through the kits this month and I have to say, this Spellbinders Glimmering Christmas Flora Card is my FAVORITE so far. WOW, what a great glimmer plate. It would look great in many different colors but I decided to get really bold and gold foil it in black. Actually, I used Polished Brass Foil as it shows up better as gold in my photos. I’m thinking Dark Green, Burgundy, dark blue would also be beautiful combos too. If you look closely at the background you will also see I used the July Embossing Folder, Christmas Wrap Pattern for a little background noise inside my cut out.

I’m also continuing with my pink theme. Sorry, but I really hate red and green Christmas cards so you won’t find many around here. You can use your imagination and change out the colors if that’s what you like.

How to create the Spellbinders Glimmering Christmas Flora Card:
Start by using Polished Brass Glimmer Foil to foil the plate into a piece of 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ black card stock, then cut it down to 4 x 5-1/4″.
Glimmer foil the sentiment onto a scrap of black as well and die cut it out with the coordinating die.
Next, cut a Pink Sand card front 4-14″ x 5-1/2″. Place it inside this months Embossing Folder Club Christmas Wrap Pattern and run it through the Platinum 6.
Then, attach the card front to a side folding A2 sized white card base. Add strips of foam tape around the back of the black panel before attaching it to the center of the card front.
ADDING THE FLORALS:
Use the poinsettia dies from the Small Die of the Month Club, cutting them out of Pink Sand cardstock.
Next, use a small blending brush and add Pinkfresh Sparkling Rose ink to the centers of the flowers.
Layer the flowers and glue them into place.
Finally, die cut the flower centers in mirror gold and glue them on.
Then, add the sentiment to the center with foam squares.
