Good Monday morning. Do you love coordinating designer paper? I sure do! My project today was made using Tina Wenke’s newly released Holiday Card Making Paper combination pack. Each 12×12 paper is made of 4- 6×6" small scale patterns which are perfect for card making. This is the paper I used today.
I cut the flower petals in both the red and green patterns to use not only as the petals but for the poinsettia leaves. I cut the pine using the green. I formed the petals and pine using my stylus and mat. I distressed some of the petal tips pointing up and some down to create a natural looking flower and assembled the flower using glossy accents. I was careful to offset each layer of petals to avoid them lining up unnaturally.
I attached the flower to the card base with glossy accents and then added the pine and green foliage around under the petals. I think these papers are so festive and appealing together. If you would like to see step by step pictures of how I assemble my flowers you can check out poinsettia tutorial on the right top side of my blog home page.
I hope you have a great week and that you get a chance to play with some paper, dies and ink. Thanks for stopping by.
