Poinsettias and Polk Dots

The poinsettia images are colored with Prismacolor pencils. After cutting out the image the edge of the cardstock is colored with a black marker to define the image; it is attached to the panel with tacky glue. This image is perfect for cutting and arranging.

Glitter was applied to the flower centers and in areas around the images.

The frame is designed to cut the rectangle out of the center but by rolling the die into the machine just far enough to cut the edges and rolling back out again will keep it as one piece which is easier to work with as a full card.
Dry emboss the entire panel.
Sponge the dots before removing the cardstock from the die.
Mask off the rectangle with sticky notes and ink distress the edges.

To form the card - cut a second frame with the same procedure but don’t emboss. Score ½” from the top, fold, apply adhesive above the score line and attach to the front panel
