There is something so special about a bright red handmade paper poinsettia arranged with holly on an all white card base and paired with a simple gold embossed sentiment.  This is such an elegant card and was easy to make and would be perfect to make several at a time for family and friends.  I used  the Poinsettia #2 paired with Holly, Deckle Frame and May the Joys sentiment.

The Card Base and Sentiment

  • Use the Deckle Frame and white cardstock to cut the sentiment layer.
  • Secure the sentiment stamp and cardstock in the MISTI.
  • Apply Versamark to the stamp and stamp the white deckle layer.
  • Apply super fine gold embossing powder and heat with heat gun.
  • Attach strips of mounting tape to the back of the sentiment layer and attach it to the card base.

The Handmade Paper Poinsettia and Holly

  • Use red, green and yellow cardstock to cut the poinsettia sections. Note:  I like to create one or two green poinsettia sections for the main base of the flower.
  • Cut the holly sections using green and red cardstock. Attach the red berries to the holly using glossy accents.
  • Lay the holly sections on a molding pad and use the leaf tool. 
  • Place the red and green poinsettia flower layers face down on a molding pad and use a large round stylus to shape the flower petals.
  • Place the red and green poinsettia flower layers face up on a molding pad and use a small tipped stylus to push down in the center of each flower to push the petals up.
  • Attach the flower layers together using glossy accents. 
  • Form one tiny yellow flower using a small tipped stylus and molding pad and attach it to the flower center using glossy accents.  Note:  I love to use my reverse tweezers when working with tiny die cut parts and pieces.

Arrange the Poinsettia and Holly

  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the poinsettia and attach it to the corner of the sentiment layer.
  • Tuck the holly branches under the poinsettia and attach them using glossy accents.
