Velveteen Poinsettia

I love this Spellbinders Poinsettia die, especially when it is cut/embossed using Velveteen paper. Unfortunately, I can't seem to capture it in the photo. I also embossed it with the Spellbinders Snowflakes Impressabilities. I've included a close up of the flower and you can see that embossing a little better.
The center is a brad from The Paper Company. I cut the holly leaves out and slipped the Spellbinders Labels Four die underneath to do the "out of the box" technique. The sentiment and holly leaves are stamped with craft ink and clear embossed. The outer embossed edge is colored with a Copic Spica pen, as are the holly leaves. The bg dp is from Basic Grey' Figgy collection. I also stamped a snowflake onto the sentiment panel to tie in the dp.
Thanks for dropping by.
