Christmas in July 2021 – Day 7

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Day 7 of Christmas in July 2021! Today I’m playing along with the CAS Christmas Card Challenge! The challenge theme is poinsettia so I thought it was the perfect time to use my brand new Sizzix Poinsettia Impresslits embossing folder.

I originally bought it to try the embossing powder/distress crayon technique that Tim Holtz demonstrated a year or so ago, but so far I have failed miserably! I think my embossing dauber is completely clogged as I can’t get decent coverage with it. I will keep trying.

So in the meantime, I coloured the poinsettia with my beloved Twinkling H2O paints. I stencilled some glitter paste to my card base and then added an Elizabeth Crafts Designs oval die cut before adhering the flower.

The die cut sentiment is by Crealies – I love that clean font!

Thanks for stopping by!
