Poinsettia Square Card

Red and green are usually not my first choice for Christmas cards but the images I wanted to use here worked best in traditional colours. 

I saw a gorgeous card made in this style in a Facebook group but I wasn't able to find the post a second time... I would love to give credit to the original artist. 

The center square was die cut and I also added a glitter square inside the frame. That entire section (with the embossed background) was raised on craft foam. The center section was created from a variety of die cuts that were arranged in a floral spray. The only embellishment on the card is the gold glitter gem in the center of the poinsettia. 

Products used are as follows: 

Paper: Cardstock - White Daisy, Evergreen, Green Apple, Candy Apple, Scarlet (all CTMH)

Stamps: Mini Christmas Greetings (Spellbinders)

Inks: Evergreen (CTMH)

Accessories: Stitched Square Thin Cuts (CTMH), Stitched Square Dies (GMD), Festive Banners (Sizzix), Cascading Dots Embossing Folder, Gold Glitter Gems (CTMH), Craft Foam

Very nice triple-layered card, Alyson! Love the focal arrangement. I'm curious about the adhesive you use on craft foam. I have some, both with adhesive on one side and non-adhesive. Just wondering what works best, that's what stops me from using mine, lol. XOX

This is another beauty! The flowers and greenery are gorgeous! I love the dies you used and all the layers! I also adore the look of embossing folders, especially on white!
