Holtz Christmas Poinsettia

The inspiration for today's card is from Elly and is found here.  She went all cream but I decided to do red and gold.  I substituted a Memory Box die for the curls on each side and my Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia die for the flower.

The most tedious part of assembling this card is putting all the tiny pieces of foam tape behind the die cuts.  But, it is essential for dimension!  I curled the petals of the flowers before gluing it together.
The finished size is 6 3/8 x 4 1/2.
