Christmas Spirelli Poinsettia Greeting Card

I used a new technique on today's card that I learned over at SplitcoastStampers.  It is called Spirelli, and you should go take a look at the tutorial for how to make designs with thread and scalloped shapes.

  I used super shimmery green as the base, and I added gold and white embossed with the Poinsettia embossing folder.  I added a paper flower from my stash and my sentiment and inside stamp from Home for Christmas.
 I punched my sentiment out with a large circle and then hid half of it behind my gold piece of cardstock.

 Here is a closer look at the spirelli scallop.

 The inside is stamped with "Though far and wide on earth we roam, at Christmastime our hearts come home."

One more look at the card.
