Good Sunday morning. Today I’m sharing a vellum poinsettia Christmas card. I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Poinsettia #2 stamped with the Splatter Background and paired with the Holly #1 and Borders #1. I thought the white embossed splatter pattern on the vellum petals was pretty and added interest to the flower.
The Decorative Layer
- Cut the decorative border layer using white cardstock.
- Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back and attach to the green card base.
- Rub embossing magic bag over a piece of white vellum to remove static.
- Apply white pigment ink to the Splatter Background and stamp it on the white vellum.
- Sprinkle white embossing powder on the vellum and then heat with the heat gun.
- Cut the poinsettia using the vellum cardstock and cut the largest flower section again using green cardstock.
- Form the petals gently using the large round stylus and molding pad.
- Attach all the layers together using glossy accents.
- Apply small white pre made white Nuvo Chrystal Drops to the center of the poinsettia and attach with glossy accents..
- Apply glossy accents to the back of the poinsettia and attach it to the card base.
- Cut two sections of the holly using green cardstock.
- Form the leaves using the leaf tool and molding pad.
- Apply white pre made Nuvo Crystal Drops to the berry sections of the holly and attach using glossy accents.
- Tuck the holly under the poinsettia petals and attach to the card base using glossy accents.
I love how this vellum poinsettia Christmas card turned out. I went back and forth as to whether I should layer the white decorative section over a red or green card base. I finally decided the green base matching the green foliage created a more elegant card and showed off the vellum poinsettia perfectly.
