This beautiful card is made with the Anja Square die by Marianne Creatables (LR0242). The leaves are cut from the largest flower of the Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia (S5-055) die. And the flourish and holly swirl is a Cheery Lynn Border Holly Flourish (B148). These dies are all available at Joan's Gardens. The poinsettia is a stamp, (SU Watercolor winter stampset) stamped on clear acetate with Staz-on ink. I added drops of reinker ink in SU's real red and cherry cobbler to 3D Crystal Lacquer and painted it on the stamped side of the acrylic. I shook micro-fine glitter on the backside before it was dry and added Stickles gold glitter glue to the center (of the stamped side of the acrylic). After it had dried I cut out the acrylic and adhered it with a popup glue spot to the card base. The fir branch accents are a Martha Stewart punch burnished with Tim Holtz Distress ink (Forest Moss). The Merry Christmas gold sticker is from Pop-ups-etc and is a Starform sticker.
