I used red cardstock for the base. The greeting was printed out from Microsoft Word and the flourishes were stamped in gold. The poinsettia's were from a 3D sheet that I cut out and layered.
After making the first card I decided to try a couple more versions. This time I used Cuttlebug's "Swiss Dots" embossing folder on the greeting. One was made on red and one on green cardstock.
