My 1st CEDT Card
Good Tuesday morning to my regular visitors, and to all who just pass through. Please feel free to leave a comment, I love to hear what you think. This is my very first card as part of the Creative Expressions Design Team, I just hope it's not my last. Fingers Crossed.

I started with the 8x8 card, I matted it with a slightly smaller piece of black card then again with a piece of vintage gold card. I stamped the gold card first with the larger pine stamp and heat embossed it with the gold embossing powder. I then cut a smaller piece of black card and a slightly smaller piece of gold card, before layering it I stamped it with the small pine stamp and again heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I then used the Californian dies and cut an aperture. I put sticky pads on the back of layers for dimension. I put the California die inside of the aperture for a set back look. I stamped 3 sets of the poinsettia's with clear perfect medium and heat embossed it with black embossing powder, and cut them out. Using cosmic shimmer mica powder in gold I mixed a bit in the lid with water and painted the stamens. I layered the poinsettias at various levels for dimension and cut some leaves in green for an added splash of colour. I cut some festive holly sprays and added some Cosmic Twinkles to the berries. For the sentiment I used the labels two die and stamped it with a Creative Expressions Winter greeting stamp. I rolled it to give a beveled effect and attached it to the centre of the card.
It seems like a lot of work but it is a really very therapeutic card if you like cutting out.
I really hope you like this one.
