Join me for Day 4 – 12 Days of Poinsettias Christmas . I have fallen in love with this bundle, so I might as well help you fall for it, too, with all the fun projects I’ve got for you this holiday season.
I made this pretty pink poinsettia card on a Facebook Live event and I just have to share it with you. It is just sooo pretty! This is just a terrific way of looking at your holiday cards a bit differently. If you are a traditionalist, this card just might make you a convert. ?
Of course, with these terrific Poinsettia Dies, they do all the work of cutting out the shape and embossing the veins in the petals, too. I did use a Sponge Dauber and the Blushing Bride stamp pad to accent the edges just a bit. You can see that layering the pieces is so easy, especially when you use a Bone Folder. It gives it just a bit of a curl of the cardstock. And a quick tip, put a Stampin’ Dimensional in between the layers for added separation to show depth. I used Gold Foil Sheets to make a leaf and a berry stem, too, for a little pop of shine. I added three large Basic Pearls at the center, to keep with the elegant nature combined with the white for a lovely soft look.
Below I used Gold Embossing Powder and heat embossed the sentiment on to Whisper White cardstock and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Dies. These dies are one of my absolute basics for any project and one of the best investment in dies to have in your inventory. Then, I adhered it to a Gold Foil Sheet cut out with the Layering Oval Dies for the perfect compliment.
In addition, to add just a bit more…(that’s how I usually roll!), I wrapped the top of the card at the fold with the gold cording from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack. I think it finishes the card nicely.
I truly hope you loved this card as much as I do, it was one of the first in my love affair with this bundle. AND, starting today, this stunning Plush Velvet Specialty Paper is on SALE for 50% off! Order now!!
