Try Stampin' on Tuesday - Woodgrain NOEL

Welcome to Try Stampin' on Tuesday Sketch 521.

The optional theme (in addition to the sketch) is school days. 

My card for this challenge is based on a gorgeous card that was presented by Desiree Kuemmerele at an online Christmas card making event. I have provided a link to her blog but this card idea was not posted on her blog. I did much of the preparation for this card with my Cricut. The poinsettia and the letters were all Cricut cut. The small branches under the NOEL were stamped and die cut. 

I started by preparing two woodgrain panels. The bottom one is woodgrain paper but I scored along the lines from the back and then used two ink pads to rub over the paper. The smaller panel was embossed with a woodgrain embossing folder and then inked to bring out the lines.

The letters were cut with my Cricut and adhered together. They were applied to the background with foam tape. The poinsettia was assembled and the branches were stamped and die cut. The branches were layered along the bottom with some adhered with foam tape. Once everything was in place, I mixed some white craft paint with water and splattered it heavily over the entire card. The last step was to add some red Stickles to the branch on the flower and along the die cut branches.
