Traditional Poinsettia

Hi guys

Just a quick post this evening to share the Christmas card I made for my best friend.

I stamped the card base with some diagonal stripes before placing a square of white cardstock over the top.  The poinsettia was created by stamping with VersaMark onto some thick red and green vellum.  I then heat embossed with some red and green embossing tinsel.  I used the co-ordinating die to cut these out and layered them up, fussy cutting away some of the leaves.  After stamping and die cutting the sentiment using a flag die, I then layered up the poinsettia, adhering with silicone glue.  I finished off with some glitter glue in the centre of the bloom, some dew drops and another sentiment.
Materials used:
  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Pretty Poinsettia, Basic Stripes, Signature Christmas and For Everyone
  • Ink: VersaMark; Versa Color - Rose Red and Green; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Embossing Powder: Heat It Up Embossing Tinsel - Red and Green
  • Glitter Glue: Stickles - Silver
  • Cardstock, vellum and dew drops from stash
