4 More Poinsettia Cards

I'm really into poinsettias for some reason this year. I've been having lots of fun embossing them as well as cutting them out as I've done here (stamp - Whispers), this time in gold. For the final touch I added a little pewter stickles for the centres. I used my MS scroll punch for the rectangle, and the bg is from Terri Conrad Designs (Winter Wonderland collection). I just bought lots more of this green cs by Bazzill as it is my favourite colour to match with red for Christmas cards. It is such a neutral green it seems to match with everything.
This is my Northwoods poinsettia stamp and I used red ink with clear EB powder to wash it out a little bit. I layered it on the deep red cs to help bring your eye into the centre.
I'm nearing the end of my favourite Christmas (holly) pp from Provo craft that I bought a couple of years ago. I sure am glad I bought so much when I did! Again I have used my MS scroll punch set (it's new so I'm still having fun with it!), and the flower is Prima. CS is Bazzill and the stamp is Studio G.
The picture doesn't show it well, but I've stamped the flourishes and embossed them with gold on shiny ivory cs. The bg layer is shiny gold cs, also from Bazzill. The flourishes and holly stamps are Heidi Grace, and the sentiment is Studio G. The red is from a scrap that I had.
