Is it too early for Christmas card? Maybe... But probably not. Considering the fact that Father Weather made an early April's Fools Day joke and we had 10 cm of snow yesterday, It is just right time to share a Christmas card. 
I used beautiful Christmas Holly Blessings Stamp Set #841. Image is stamped directly to the pattern paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Mostly it's colored with Promarkers, but the vase is colored with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (Indian Gold). I used Mousse as a paint and I applied it with water brush. Berries are covered with Nuvo Jewel Drops (Strawberry Coulis).

Sentiment is stamped with Versamark ink. It's covered with Gold Detail Embossing Powder. After tapping off the excess powder I used the heat tool to melt it.

This card would have been pretty without flowers too but I wanted to add two poinsettias to it. Flowers are die cut with Creative Expressions Poinsettia dies. I added some gold to them with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (Indian Gold). Again I used water brush to apply the Mousse. 
After shaping and assembling the flowers, I added blob of  Nuvo Crystal Drops (Pale Gold) in center of them. Crystal Drops are covered with Black Glass Glitter

Indian Gold Mousse was painted through the DIY stencil to make some squares to the pattern paper.
Edges of the matting layer are covered with 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and Midnight Gold Glitter. 

Pattern paper is cut in pieces and popped up with foam tape to let the sentiment layer peek out from underneath. 
Few dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops (Pale Gold) and some pieces of Black Glass Glitter was adhered to the card as well. 

The next stop on our blog hop is very talented Belinda. Have fun!
