Magenta Christmas: Poinsettia Corner

I think of all of the new Magenta collection, not counting Sally Penley's beautiful calligraphy stamps, I love the Poinsettia Corner the most. I can actually see this beautiful floral stamp being used all year round; it could almost be for any season.

I stamped the Poinsettia Corner stamp with Versamark ink and embossed it with JudiKins Gold Detail embossing powder. I watercolored the petals and berries with Candied Apple Distress ink, and the leaves with Mowed Lawn Distress. I was trying to keep this simple, because this will be one of my actual Christmas cards this year; I love how it looks.

I stamped and embossed the beautiful Sally Penley Merry Christmas sentiment with Versamark and embossed it in Gold as well. I think these two stamps work so perfectly together.

The panel was die cut out of Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock, using the Lawn Fawn die set LF768 Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables. The largest die of that set cuts a panel to 3.75" x 5". The panel was matted with Hopsack Red cardstock from The Paper Cut.

This card counts as my July Christmas card. I didn't do the June tags yet, but I still plan to!
