Everyone needs poinsettias for the holidays. Right? I made a similar card last year, but used some new ingredients for today’s poinsettia card.

Christmas Poinsettia

 

 

I began with the same leaf from the Rooted In Nature Stamp Set, stamping in Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, and Shaded Spruce Inks.

Then I used its Nature’s Roots Die for cutting the six bracts and three leaves.

Next, I distressed the leaves by embossing them with the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder, wetting them with my Aqua Painter, and crimping with my stylus.

 

Before assembling the poinsettia, I prepared the Thick Whisper White card base, attaching a 4 1/4″ X 2″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock embossed with the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder.

Then, I placed the leaves on Dimensionals, arranging them in a circle.

The center was made with Iridescent Sequins.

“Happy Christmas” is from the Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die.

 

My layout is from Freshly Made Sketches.
