I started with the largest of my XL Scalloped Square Stackers Nesting dies, embossing and cutting out the red card base. Using my Holly XL Embossing Plate and gold mirror card stock, I created the background panel. Next was the beautiful Poinsettia 2 die, using a combination of red card stock, gold mirror card stock and gold glitter glue. I dry embossed the flower petals so they would curl and have some dimension. Using my XL Scalloped Oval Stackers Nesting dies, I created the two oval panels, embossing the gold panel with my Diamonds and Starburst XL Embossing Plate. For the border panel, I used my Frills and Hearts Border die, layering a gold panel over a red panel. To balance the card, I added the corner panels on the right side using the smallest dies from my XL Scalloped Circle Stackers Nesting dies. I again embossed the gold panels with the Diamonds and Starburst XL Embossing plate. I added some gold jewels in the corners, some ribbon and a fancy bow and I was done. Finished size is 5 5/8" square.
