Framed Poinsettia, Pine and Holly

Good Saturday morning. I love making poinsettia holiday cards and my project today was made using the newly released Impression Obsession Small Poinsettia Set paired with the Holly FlourishPine Pair and All-in-One Frames Rectangles 2. If I had this project to do over again I would have added a larger layer or two of petals from the newly released Large Poinsettia Set to fill in the space but I still like how this turned out.

I started by attaching the two frames to the card base using thin strips of mounting tape. I formed the flower petals using my stylus and molding pad and assembling using glossy accents.  I finished the flower using a tiny snow pearl.  I cut a couple holly flourishes and attached 1/8” punched circles with glossy accents in key spots on the vines and then applied red stickles to add sparkle.  I cut several pieces of pine and lightly formed them with my stylus and molding pad.

I began the design by attaching a the pine pieces to the card base with glossy accents. I then applied glossy accents to the back of the poinsettia and attached over to the pine.  I then tucked a few pine tips and the holly flourishes under and around the poinsettia and attached with glossy accents. I like the soft flow of the holly branches jutting out over the frames. And of course I love using my favorite holiday card color combination of red, white and green.

  1. Good morning Kittie, you know how much I love your Christmas cards (I can’t believe it’s that time of the year already), I so enjoy seeing everything you create for the holidays! The berries on the stems are the icing on the cake . . . so precious! Hugs!!

  2. Very pretty Kittie. I rather like seeing a smaller Poinsettia on a card instead of the very large ones mostly used on cards. Both are pretty but I hardly ever see a smaller one used.

  3. Good Morning, Kittie.Beautiful poinsettia, I love this flower, has much meaning for Christmas. I had a neighbor in New Zealand that had a huge flowing poinsettia,(like you would see climbing roses) growing in her yard. First time I had seen it growing other than in pots. It is summer there,for Christmas. Seeing the poinsettia’s growing brought memories of them during this time of year in the US. they are gorgeous…..Have a good week-end….LOL
