It had been quite awhile since I'd done an emboss resist card, and, to be honest, I was hankering to do one for the Christmas season.
I grabbed this pretty retired set with large open poinsettias, figuring it would be perfect for the vision I had in my head. Starting with a piece of white cardstock that measures 4" x 5 1/4", I did one flower at a time, first of all, rubbing the area well with my good old Embossing Buddy (where would we be without these treasures?) I stamped one poinsettia in VersaMark ink, then sprinkled it with gold embossing powder, heating it with my Heat Tool. Once the first flower was done, I moved on to the next one, overlapping the first one just a bit, heat embossing the gold powder. I proceeded like this, flower by flower, until the cardstock was filled with pretty gold embossed poinsettias.
