CFC69 & Dynamic Duos #19

I can't believe it but it is time for my my first Christmas card of the season!  This week's challenge at CASual Fridays is to create a clean and simple project using embossing.  While over at Dynamics Duos this week's colour are Cajun Craze & Always Artichoke which I translated into PTI Terracotta Tile & Ripe Avocado.  I pulled out two rubber stamps that I purchased when I was in University.  They are by Magenta which is a Canadian company.  The stamps are so old that they don't even have names, only numbers. The two flowers paired together make the most beautiful poinsettia in my eyes.  I went with both dry embossing on the Ripe Avocado layer and heat embossing  with tinsel embossing powder.

  

 
All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock:  Kraft, Ripe Avocado, Terracotta Tile
Stamps: 29OBN, 29O12P
Ink:  Ripe Avocado (PTI), VersaMark (Tsukineko)
Impression Plate: Herringbone
other: foam dots, Tinsel embossing powder (Recollections)

Georgeous card. Love the embossing on the flower. Love how you paired the two flowers to make a pointsettia. The herringbone bacckground is perfect. This card is very designer team worthy.

This is absolutely beautiful. The embossing is perfect. I didn't realize that Magenta was a Canadian company, they have so many beautiful designs on their stamps, including this one!

Gold embossing looks spectacular on that colour card stock! So fun to see a Magenta stamp in use - I have a nice collection of them (I'm Canadian). Thanks for playing along at Dynamic Duo's this week.
Cheers, Karen
