Red Poinsettia Burst - Merry Christmas

Here is the first of my August Class cards. We did Christmas In August with some great new stamp sets and Dies.

I stamped the Poinsettias in Cranberry Bliss Fusion Ink and the leaves in Fresh Forest Fusion ink and heat embossed all with clear detail embossing powder. I them fussy cut them all out and popped with phone tape. On this card, I used Journey Whip Cream Thread, but in my class cards, we used Journey Candy Apple Red Twine. I just thought the red made it pop more. 
Gold Silk was used to splatter gold on the card front.
The centers of the Poinsettias were adorned with the Red berries from Berries and Holly accessories. 
I LOVE the trending Black and White used in the Christmas Cheer Prints Paper.
