Good Saturday morning.  My project today is a die cut framed poinsettia and holly card and I want to share a little secret about the frame.  I have been making lots of projects using the newly released Rubbernecker Tree in Oval.  I love the tree and have found uses for it alone on some of my projects and have cut it a few away from the oval frame.  I didn’t want to waste the frame so I decided to put them to use.  The big Poinsettia #2 and Holly arrangement covers up the cut out spot where the tree had been attached.  My mother used to say “waste not, want not”.  LOL!   I thought the Merry Little Christmas sentiment was perfect inside the frame.

Come see how I made this die cut framed poinsettia and holly.

The Sentiment and Frame

  • Secure the white card base in the MISTI.
  • Stamp the sentiment using Nocturne Versafine Clair.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the all the way around the back of the frame.
  • Attach the frame to the card base.

Come see how I made this gorgeous die cut framed poinsettia and holly.

The Poinsettia

  • Cut the poinsettia sections out using red cardstock and cut the largest poinsettia section out twice using green cardstock.
  • Cut the tiny flower centers using yellow cardstock and form them using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Lay the flower sections face down on the molding pad and use the large ball stylus to press down on the petals to form them.
  • Lay the flower sections face up on the molding pad and use a small tipped stylus to press down in the center to push up the petals.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the flower sections together, offsetting them to form a natural looking flower.
  • Attach the tiny flowers to the center using glossy accents.
  • Attach the flower to the card base and frame using glossy accents.

The Holly

  • Cut several holly sections using green cardstock and red cardstock for the berries.
  • Use the jewel picker to pick up the berries and attach them to the berry spots on the branches using glossy accents.
  • Gently form the holly leaves with your fingers to add dimension.
  • Tuck the holly sections around under the poinsettia petals and attach with glossy accents.

Come see how I made this festive die cut framed poinsettia and holly.

I love how this die cut framed poinsettia and holly card turned out.  I think this poinsettia set creates the most natural looking flower of any set I have used (and I have used plenty).  You can check out my Poinsettia Tutorial if you would like to see how I form my flowers.  I sure do appreciate you coming by and I hope you have a great weekend.
