I decided to "play tag" with this week's Color Throwdown colors: White, Silver, Gumball Green, Kraft. I silver embossed the poinsettia on vellum, then chose a Copic marker (YG07) and colored on the back. When I flipped it over, I liked the muted, lighter tone and layered it over a second poinsettia that I stamped on white cardstock using Gumball Green ink. I die cut the large tag then embossed with SU's Square Lattice EF - a go to folder that I use often. I cut a couple of strips of silver glitter CS then layered the flower and leaves. While the leaves were still in the die, I sponged the veins with Gumball Green ink, removed the leaves from the die and sponged around the edges. That little detail always makes them pop so much more! Yellow Stickles were added to the flower center. My second tag is simply a layered snowflake (die by SU) with a simple banner tag for the sentiment.
