For my card I have used Grunge Stamp set and Reason for the Season stamp set, 
 both from stampin up.
I started by stamping the lines in versa mark and added gold embossing powder, I then stamped my poinsettia onto white card in versa mark and again heat embossed in gold, then fussy cut out.
I used gold cording trim from Stampin Up for the 3 loops, and added 3 gold sequins.
The sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers mixed christmas sentiments set.


  1. Beautiful Gail. The design with the gold and white is sophisticated and elegant, even though you've grunge stamps for your background. Just goes to show the versatility of that amazing stamp set. xx
