Ornate Oval Frame with Poinsettias

Hi Everyone!  Ann here with a holiday card and some teal poinsettias which are my favorite.

These are the dies I used:

Sue Wilson Starry Night Sky (for the tiny stars)

Sue Wilson Starry Night Sky

For being such a detailed die, the Ornate Oval Frame cut out perfectly in just one swipe in  my Vagabond machine.

To make the poinsettias, I layered two of the largest size with a piece of foam tape in between to give more dimension, rounded the backs with a foam mat and stylus and then adhered a smaller flower to the top.  The leaves are made by simply adding another one of the largest flowers cut on green glitter card stock.  These poinsettias are the perfect size for the Ornate Oval.

For the finishing touches, I added some IO Fir Sprigs and some tiny stars left over from a previous card using the Sue Wilson Starry Night Sky.
