CHRISTMAS CARD CLASS #4, Vintage Poinsettia Bough Card...

Hope everyone is recovering well from their Thanksgiving dinner.  I didn't have much of a chance to recover as I have been shopping, shopping, shopping since midnight!  I was out all night and am taking a break before going out again.  I hope to make quite a dent in my shopping list today and scoop out lots of specials!  

This is another card from my Christmas Card #4 class.  It was a request from one of my downline. She saw a similar card in the swaps I brought back from the Baltimore Regionals and wanted to include it in our class. Unfortunately, there was no name on the card for credit.  The Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper and Bells & Boughs Stamp Set are both part of the Holiday Bundle promotion, so don't miss out on this 20% off deal.  See the details of this bundle below the recipe.

This card has a base cut to 4-1/4" x 11" and scored at 2.75" and 5.5".  The 2.75" score is valley fold and the 5.5" score is mountain fold.  For the coloring, I used Stampin' Pastels and a blender pen for a softer, more vintage feel followed by highlighting with the white Gel Pen.  Next I used the Color Spritzer on the focal image and the inside of the card.  Be sure to seal the pastels with a matte sealer or hairspray.  Also, I used shimmer Mist on the DSP and focal image, although it does not show much in the pictures.  Enjoy!
