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. 

Come see how I made this clean and simple poinsettia card.

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.

Come see how I made this lovely clean and simple poinsettia card.

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.
