I can’t even explain how this creating community has changed my life, my career and my way of thinking. I met new friends that although they live far away they are really close to my heart.

For my holiday card I used the lovely Festive Poinsettia Stamp Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS ). I embossed the flower on watercolor paper with
Antique Gold Crisp Embossing Powder( ALTN | SSS ). The golden touches give a really festive look ton my card.

To color my flower I used the AltenewWatercolor Brush Markers( ALTN | SBC | SSS ). It’s really easy to blend these colors on watercolor paper and you can watch the video for a step by step tutorial on how I did it.  For adding something extra on the background I used the
Kind Confetti Stamp Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS ) that added all those dots! They are also embossed with antique gold.

Finally for my sentiment I used one from the same stamp set that says “wishing you” and I combined it with the word JOY that I die cut using the Fine Alphabet Die Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS ).
