Vintage Poinsettias Xmas Card

When I think of Vintage I always think of Tim Holtz items. All cardstock except for light Kraft cardstock base (from Kraft Journal store) is TH cardstock. The red rope is not TH.

Sanded the TH cardstock before stamping or die cutting. Stamped the TH Poinsettias, used TH dies to paper piece & pop them up with foam adhesive. Added TH yellow stickles to center of Poinsettias.

Supplies List 

adhesive: foam
ink: Memento - Cottage Ivy, Rose Bud
machine: Tim Holtz Vagabond
paper:  cardstock - Light Kraft Cover Weight (from Kraft Journal store) - base of card
rope: Recollections Valentine red
Tim Holtz: cardstock - all except for Kraft listed above   sander  
   stamp - Merry Christmas - Poinsettias, sentiment  stickles - Yellow
