Quiet Christmas Part Two - Joy to the World Bouquet

We finish up this part of the Quiet Christmas Release with the grand design done by
 Marcella with great detail.  This is what she is famous for, her beautiful flowers. 
This stamp set in Polymer or digital includes,
Poinsettia, Hellebores ( some have gone to seed), Pomegranate, Pine, Ivy and
Cranberries!  You will have a masterpiece when you finish coloring this one. 

I did something a little different on this design, after printing out the digital stamp a bit larger than the original, I ran it through my Minc foiling machine with gold foil.  Then I colored up the flowers.  I love how this turned out. The finished card is 5 1/2 square base. It shines just like a Christmas card should.
You can see some of the shine here at this angle. I did use Copic markers to bring these beauties to life. 

Look at the sentiment also foiled in gold. Both the main image and the sentiment are layered in black card stock to make it classic. 

Here is the video.  I just had to capture the shine and I hope you enjoy! 

Now for the hop to see what the other Bloomies has created for you. Remember, you can order digital instantly or if you prefer actual stamps here. Power Poppy

  8. Your beautiful card Barbara is my CASE a Bloomie card on day 8 of the 12 Days of Christmas event on the PP blog.
    This card answers my question I wanted to know for so long; print, foil and colour or print, colour and than foil.
    I will give this definitely a try, I love this card with foil and gorgeous colouring.
