I've gone for some very bright, non-traditional colour for my card using the colours from this week's Merry Monday - MM#100. I used the layout from last week's Waltzingmouse Fanatics challenge - WMSFC#13. I started by stamping some text onto the bottom of the card in soft grey and then made the panel with white and lime card. I stamped the sentiment in lime at the top of the card. Next I stamped the large, funky poinsettia three times in Versamark on to bright pink card and vellum, heat embossing them all with white powder. I cut out the whole of the bright pink poinsettia and attached it to the card. I coloured the reverse of the vellum flowers with lime on one and pink on the other and then carefully cut out the layers, to reveal the bright pink at the bottom, some green leaves and the top pink layer. I finished the centre with some gems. You can't really see the dimension of the flower above, so here are a couple more views showing that I have got a dimensional paper flower!
You can see that the petals have a gentle curve and on the side view you can see all three layers. I have kept it reasonably flat so that it is okay for the post. On the inside I cut a mat layer of lime card, stamped the poinsettia in pink and added a sentiment.
