Good Morning! Do you realize that Christmas is 6 months away? It always arrives before I’m ready, so I need to start early with Christmas cards! Here is my first Christmas card for the year made with the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals photopolymer stamp set and fabulous Poinsettia dies. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
I used a Blending Brush to apply Soft Succulent ink to a Basic White panel. I randomly stamped the berry sprig from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Soft Suede ink on the panel. I stamped the berries in Real Red ink and then embossed the panel with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder. I adhered the panel to the right side of the front of a Soft Succulent card base. I cut the strip of striped Pansy Petals designer series paper with the Scalloped Contours die and adhered it to the right side of the card.
I one each of the three largest Poinsettia dies from Real Red card stock with the embossing insert and gently curved the petals with my fingers. I adhered the petal clusters together with liquid glue, alternating the petals so they fell between the petals in the layer below. I cut one each of the leaf dies from Soft Succulent card stock with the embossing insert. I adhered the flower and leaves to the card front with glue dots. I added three gold glitter enamel dots to the center of the flower.
I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Versamark ink on Evening Evergreen. I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set the powder until it was shiny. I cut the sentiment with the Tailor Made Tags die. I adhered a Real Red bow to the end of the tag and slipped it under the flower.
For the inside of the card, I stamped the pine sprig from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Evening Evergreen on the bottom and top corners of a Basic White panel. I stamped the berry sprig in Soft Suede ink in the lower corner and stamped the berries in Real Red. I stamped the sentiment in Real Red and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
I’m so glad that the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals stamp set and dies were carries over from last year’s Holiday Catalog because these are the most beautiful poinsettias ever! And don’t the Real Red flowers look great with the new In Color greens – Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent? One last tip – they also go beautiful with the Plush Poinsettia Specialty paper (item 153486) in the Clearance Rack!
