Christmas Card: Foiled Poinsettias

I love Christmas, especially the lights. The feeling of peace and joy abounds when lights are all aglow at night. To replicate the glow, I used foiling details on the poinsettia focal images in the card for today. It was not difficult to do. Using a glue pen, I traced the petals of the poinsettias and let it dry. Then, I used gold deco foil to create that shine. You can do this with any image you have. Foil comes in many different colors and varieties. Green foil to outline the leaves of a Christmas tree or multi color foil to add lights to a tree is one choice. Pearlescent foil for snowflakes is another. As I always say, your imagination is your only limitation. I hope you’ll give this card a try!
