Peace On Earth - May You Have - Easel

Yogi here today with an easel card using one of the newest digital cutting files from Suzanne as a focal point. These words just begged to be made big...
This is what the file looks like available on the Silhouette onLine store

I'm also using a quote from Quietfire Design "May You Have The Gladness..."

Scored, and folded my golden toned beige cardstock to create the easel (6"w x 6"h). Cut another piece the same size as my card and adhered to front.

Electronically cut the "Peace on Earth" using SCAL (Sure Cuts a Lot software) and my Silhouette machine, sizing it to 5.8"h from white cardstock and while still on my mat, painted with Distress Dabbers "Tarnished Brass" acrylic paint. Removed from mat. Cut a shadow layer and painted that with "Black Soot", Adhered both layers together. Inked with Versamark and clear embossed then adhered it to my amethyst toned ribbed foil cardstock. Trimmed down and adhered to front. Added a multi loop Sari ribbon bow.

On the Floor: Used my Misti to stamp the poinsettia (Penny Black "Scarlet Majesty") on HP watercolor paper using Distress pads ("Victorian Velvet" all over the flowers; "Dusty Concord" at the base and on berries; "Shabby Shutters" on the leaves; "Forest Moss" on stems and accents; "Mustard Seed" on the center), misted with water and stamped. Misted with more water and stamped again. Moved around some areas with a wet paint brush. Dried. Trimmed down. Stamped the quote using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Sponged some purple around the edges. Added white pencil mark detail on the berries and Perfect Pearls "Butterscotch" dots to the center. Adhered to a piece of cardstock then on to floor using 3D foam tape to act as my stopper.

As a final touch, added the mini square amethyst rhinestones to the corners.
