Christmas Bouquet

Hi Friends!
I'd like to welcome you to my part of the Wednesday Inspiration happening now on the Heartfelt Creations Blog. Check out all of the beautiful projects on the blog!

Once again this week, I'm using the beautiful paper, boughs and pine cones from the Merry and Bright Collection.  The snowflake paper was matted in black on a 7.5 x 5.5 card base.  The window was cut out with the Botanic Window Die and the house was traced using the inside window die so that the window would overlap the house. 

The large poinsettias were created with the Sparkling Poinsettia stamps and dies, stamped in Fern Green, lightly sponged with Desert Sand and Fern Green.  The holly leaves were made with the Large Sparkling Poinsettia, they were stamped and sponged with Fern Green.  All of the images were cut out with corresponding dies and sculpted with the Floral Shaping Essentials, except for the small poinsettias which were sculpted with the 3D Poinsettia Shaping Mold and the larger poinsettias were sculped with the 3D Floral Basics Shaping Mold.  The small poinsettias were stamped in Lilac Posies, sponged in the same, Ribbit prills added to the centers and all of the poinsettias were covered in Frosting Powder.

The snowy branches from the Window Box Fillers set were stamped in black and colored with a brown colored pencil.

The pine cones and boughs from the Merry and Bright and Snow Pine Village sets were stamped in Rich Cocoa and  the boughs sponged in Fern Green and Library Green sponged around the outsides, the pine cones were sponged in Creamy Brown and Rich Cocoa sponged around the outsides.  A sentiment from the Merry and Bright Paper Collection was adhered among the poinsettias and glue was sponged on the boughs, sentiment, pine cones, and house and Frosting Powder was added.
