Good Monday morning. My project today is a clean and simple poinsettia card made using the Rubbernecker Poinsettia #1 paired with the Berries, Greenery and Square Combo Frame. I really like the simplicity of the pink poinsettia and green foliage against the white framed background. Don’t laugh but I got this card totally put together and realized I had failed to put a Christmas sentiment in the lower portion of the frame before I attached it to the card base. Oh well…it’s still pretty. Maybe I can fit a die cut sentiment in the opening.
Assembling The Poinsettia
- Cut the flower out once using pink cardstock and the largest flower section twice using pink cardstock.
- Cut the tiny flowers out using yellow cardstock.
- Use mini applicators to apply Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick ink to all the flower petals to add depth of color.
- Place the flower sections face down on the molding pad and form the petals using the large round stylus.
- Place the flower sections face up on the molding pad and push down in the center using the small tipped stylus to push the petals up.
- Begin assembling the flower by attaching the layers together using glossy accents. Off set the layers so no petals are lined directly over each other. I used two green layers on the bottom to create a full base.
- Form the tiny flower centers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad and attach in the flower center using glossy accents.
The Berry Branches and Greenery
- Cut the berry branches and greenery using green cardstock.
- Cut the berries for the holly using pink cardstock.
- Apply glossy accents to the berry bases and use the jewel picker to pick up the berries and attach.
- Apply Worn Lipstick ink to the berries to add a depth of color.
Create the Arrangement
- Apply glossy accents to the back of the poinsettia and attach it to the card base.
- Tuck the berry branches under the flower petals and holly and attach with glossy accents.
- Tuck the greenery sections under the flower petals and attach with glossy accents.
I hope you have been inspired to get out your poinsettia, berry branches and greenery dies to make a clean and simple poinsettia card of your own. I sure do appreciate you coming by and I hope you have a great day and a great week.
