Poinsettia Christmas Card

I found this colour combo to be a bit of a challenge, and had to play around. I had all of the colours (SU) except for Sweet Sugarplum, so had to improvise for that one. I ended up using Victorian Velvet Distress Ink, which I sponged onto white cardstock. (I made the poinsettia with the Victorian Velvet.)

This was a quite simple card once I’d worked out how I was going to put it together, with just layering the colours on each other.

After die cutting the poinsettia, which was done with the Spellbinders Poinsettia set, I added additional distress ink to the tips of each leaf. (?Petal) The greeting is from an obsolete SU set called Word Play.

Once I’d stamped the greeting, and added the poinsettia to the card, I added some rhinestones around the card, as well as a larger one in the centre of the poinsettia.

And that is it. Done.

I hope you’ll stop by the Season’s Greetings blog and join in this challenge. I’d love to see you there.

  1. This was such a pretty color combination and what is Christmas without a poinsettia. Love that flower die. Nice bit of bling and sentiment is lovely too.

  2. I love poinsettias for Christmas cards and yours is so beautiful. You did a wonderful job of shaping it too.
