Partial Die Cut Poinsettia

Me again!

Next up is, yes you've guessed it, another card I made at the retreat last month.  I was on a roll!

And another using the partial die cutting technique, but this time the panel was mounted onto the card base rather than being cut direct from the card base.

I partial die cut the poinsettia from a panel of white cardstock and then trimmed off the excess horizontally.  I then stamped the co-ordinating poinsettia in VersaMark and heat embossed in silver.  I also heat embossed the sentiment in silver.  I adhered the panel to a card base to which I'd already adhered a panel of black cardstock.  I then added some red Stickles to the centre of the flower to finish.  The embossing is a little clearer in the next photo.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Pretty Poinsettia II, Christmas Poinsettia (sentiment)
  • Die: Clearly Besotted - Pretty Poinsettia
  • Ink: VersaMark
  • Embossing Powder: Wow! - Metallic Silver
  • Accents: Stickles - Red
