I love making paper poinsettias for Christmas cards, gifts, home decor and tags. Sadly, I will put my die set away as this will be my last poinsettia card for Christmas 2019.  A couple of weeks ago I created a card a white on white card with the same layout using the same dies and sentiment but with the poinsettia and holly placement on the top of the card.  I love adding a red layer adds such a festive feel to this card. 

For this card I used the Rubbernecker Poinsettia #2, Holly, Nested Deckle Rectangles and May the Joys sentiment.

There is something so special about a bright red handmade paper poinsettia and holly on an all white card base. Click over to see how I made my poinsettia.

The Card Base and Sentiment

  • Cut the deckle layers using red and white cardstock.
  • Secure the sentiment stamp and white layer 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 the red layer to the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Attach strips of mounting tape to the back of the sentiment layer and attach it to the red card layer.

The Handmade Paper Poinsettia and Holly

  • Use red and green 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. 
  • Attach pre made gold Nuvo Crystal Drops to the flower center using glossy accents.

Arrange the Poinsettia and Holly

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