MC Nov/12 - Quill Poinsettia - Noel

Click on card for larger view
Decided to make a few more quilled cards for show & share at my next quilling session this Wednesday... For this card I used holly leaves I had made at my last session, but inked them with Versafine Toffee and embossed with Queen's Gold.

I used a cream toned card - 4.25"w x 5.5"h

Embossed the front with Crafts Too "Holly" embossing folder, sponged lightly with a dirty red sponge and a touch of a brown one. Added some red rhinestones to the berries.

Added a Peel Off black lace border, a light green narrow ribbon and a red twisted ribbon.

Stamped the sentiment (Quietfire Design), one letter at a time on a diagonal with Versafine Black Onyx, filled the letters with a Quickie Glue Pen and sprinkled Ritz micro fine glitter "Stardust"

Sprayed Dylusions Red on some cardstock and dabbed with a dirty paper towel which left a bit of blue residue from a previous coloring... Die cut the Tattered Poinsettia (Sizzix Tim's die) - the 2 smaller sizes and curled them with my fingernail. Edged the petals with a Perfect Medium pad and embossed with white embossing powder. Layered the two together, then added yellow Stickles to the center. When dry, dotted them with a black Identi Pen. Adhered my quilled holly leaves.
