One layer cards are truly a big challenge for me.  I just seem to make it more complicated always by wanting to give the card dimension.  I started by masking the strip and circle and proceeded to create a bokeh pattern with a stencil using two different greys (Fiskars & Memento).  Since this was to be a Christmas card, I added some shine by heat embossing with clear shimmer EP.   I removed the masks and added another poinsettia stencil  created with The Lavish Poinsettia dies by Tattered Lace.  The Versamark pad was pressed in the larger poinsettia aperture and heat embossed with a raspberry EP.  The smaller poinsettia is molding paste with the same powder and heat embossed before it dried.  A second coat of silver and a third coat of rasberry EPs were heated.  “C’est Noël” (It’s Christmas) was silver heat embossed twice.  Liquid Pearls were added for the stamen along with a little glitter.  White gel pen and micron dark purple were drawn in to add more dimension.  Finally a fine line was added on the left side and heat embossed in silver to give balance.  Hope you enjoy, thanks so much for stopping by, HUGz, JoannaIMG_2824
