Hello Friends, and welcome to the Honey Bee Stamps Holiday Cheer Blog Hop. If you have already started you would have come from my friend Bobbi's Blog. Stay tuned as I will get into all the Hop and Giveaway details near the end of this post. So let's get started! 

CARD DETAILS

I began this card by stamping and heat gold embossing all the images from the PRETTY POINSETTIAS stamp set that I was going to use onto Bristol paper. I then watercolored these beautiful images using Karin Pro Brush Markers.

Once the images were dry I die cut them using the coordinating PRETTY POINSETTIAS DIES

The next step was to create the background for my images. I used the MISTLETOE SLIMLINE COVER PLATE to die cut two layers and glued them together for added reinforcement. I then created the Slimline Bridge Card by following measurements and directions from one of Jennifer McGuire's Videos. To the center of the Bridge Card, I glued a strip of green glitter paper. I then glued the edges of the MISTLETOE SLIMLINE COVER PLATE to the flaps of the Card.

The fun part was creating an arrangement on the front of the card. Once I settled on the design I glued the pieces down either with GLUE or foam tape.

The sentiment is a combination of the MERRY DIES and the MERRY stamp set that I stamped onto a small banner from SENTIMENT BANNER DIES

As finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the centers of the poinsettias and the berries. I also added some sparkly crystals to where berries would be onto the mistletoe background.

The fun part about these bridge cards is that they fold flat to fit into the envelope.
