Poinsettias too?




Two for the price of one today. . . LOL


I wanted to show off my Poinsettia cards today too. I totally CASED an idea from Jlazarski (my good friend Jessica) on SCS, and I loved her idea of using the flower stamp from SU's Delight in Life to make a poinsettia. How pretty is that?!


So you stamp the flower twice with versamark, cover in gold EP, and heat. Then cut them out and layer them one on top of the other so the petals all show. I used a gummy pop dot in between to give it dimension as well. Then I used ribbon (old olive) behind the flower to accent it. Different dp on layers to give it a country feel or my favorite is the elegant one with vanilla cs and the linen cuttlebug folder with Happy Holidays (SU Frosty set) gold embossed on the dp too. This one has antique square brads in the corners to accent just a little. I think I may make a few more of these, as I need 10 for the month for our Christmas Card Challenge. They were fun to make and pretty quick too.
