Who doesn’t love having a Poinsettia at Christmas ? I do but every year I manage to kill them off before the big day. This year I can enjoy a paper version made from the Poinsettia Petals stamp set which I know will last much longer than the real thing in my house.
This card is made simply from one stamped flower image and three leaves and coloured with Stampin’ Blends. I’ve used Real Red for the flower and Old Olive for the leaves.
I’ve cut these images out with the matching Poinsettia Dies but you could easy fussy cut them as there a fairly easy shape. For the background of the card I used some of the mistletoe patterned paper from the Poinsettia Place DSP. I added a strip of the Real Red Double Stitched Satin Ribbon across the centre of the dsp before adhering to a layer of Real Red and then Old Olive cardstock.
I stamped the greeting on a die cut from the Ornate Frames set. I then added my poinsettia to the left side of the card and added the leaves around it. To finish off the card I added one of the Beaded Pearl Embellishments to the centre of the card, I think this adds a real elegant touch to the card.
