Handmade Paper Poinsettia

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 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.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my handmade paper poinsettia card.  The poinsettia is certainly an iconic Christmas symbol and are perfect on holiday cards and projects.  You can see lots of handmade paper poinsettia inspiration on this Pinterest link.  Thank you for coming by today and I hope you have a great week.

Poinsettia Paper Flowers Basket

My project today is a poinsettia paper flowers basket with a double matted frame made using dies by Rubbernecker Stamps.  For this arrangement I only used the smallest flower section in the Poinsettia #2 set and paired it with the Baskets, Holly #1 and Greenery #1.  The frame was made using the Nested Rectangle Small Stitch set.  I used to make almost all my cards with frames like this and I had forgotten how much I like they way they look.

Come see my poinsettia paper flowers basket.

The Double Matted Frame

  • Line the dies and and cardstock on the cutting platform and run through the machine.
  • Cut the large frame using white cardstock and the mat using red cardstock.
  • Attach the two frames together using strips of mounting tape.
  • Use an additional layer of mounting tape on the back of the frames to attach them to the card base.
  • Note:  I like separating the frames with mounting tape because I think they look far more interesting than being attached flat together and adds another element of dimension.

Come see my elegant poinsettia paper flowers basket.

The Poinsettia Paper Flowers Basket

  • Cut the basket and foliage using green cardstock, the flowers using red cardstock and the tiny flower centers using yellow cardstock.
  • Place the flowers face down on the molding pad and form the flowers using the large round stylus.
  • Turn the flowers face up on the molding pad and push down in the center of each using the small tipped stylus.
  • Attach the flower sections together using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the basket in behind the frame and attach to the card base using mounting tape.
  • Apply glossy accents to the poinsettias and attach them to the card base.
  • Tuck pieces of holly and evergreen branches under the poinsettias and attach them using glossy accents.

Come see my lovely poinsettia paper flowers basket.

Gold Embossed Vellum Poinsettia

Good Wednesday morning.  Today I’m sharing a gold embossed vellum poinsettia card.  I shared a white embossed vellum poinsettia card a couple of days ago and loved how the white splatter looked on on the petals.  I decided gold embossed splatter would look pretty on the white vellum and for this project I gold embossed the foliage and eyelet border as well.  The layout is exactly the same as my earlier card but the gold adds an extra touch of elegance.  My photos are a little over bright because it is always hard for me to get good pictures of gold embossing.  I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Splatter Background, Poinsettia #2 and Holly #1 and Borders #1.

Come see how I made this gold embossed vellum poinsettia card.

The Decorative Layer

  • Cut the decorative border layer using white cardstock.
  • Apply masking tape along the eyelet border, apply versa and gold embossing powder and heat with the heat gun.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back and attach to the card base.

Come see how I made this lovely gold embossed vellum poinsettia card.

The Vellum Poinsettia and Holly

  • Stamp the Splatter Background on a piece of white vellum using versa and emboss with gold embossing powder.
  • Cut the flower sections, form them gently with a stylus and molding pad and attach the layers using glossy accents.
  • Cut two layers of the largest flower and two sections of holly using white cardstock, apply versa and gold embossing powder and heat.
  • Attach the poinsettia to the gold flower layers using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the back of the flower and attach it to the card base.
  • Finish the flower center by attaching pre made gold Nuvo Chrystal Drops using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the gold holly and gold flower petals under the poinsettia and attach using glossy accents.

Come see how I made this elegant gold embossed vellum poinsettia card.

I hope you don’t mind seeing a repeat of my earlier card with this gold embossed vellum poinsettia card.  Here is a Pinterest link with lots of gold embossed vellum poinsettia projects.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you take some time to get crafty today.

Vellum Poinsettia Christmas Card

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.

Come see how I made this lovely vellum poinsettia Christmas card.

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.

Come see how I made this elegant vellum poinsettia Christmas card.

The Poinsettia

  • 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.

The Holly

  • 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.

Come see how I made this vellum poinsettia Christmas card.

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.  Check out this Vellum Poinsettia Cards link on Pinterest for more inspiration.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a good Sunday.

White Poinsettias and Holly

Good Sunday morning.  I have a white on white poinsettias and holly card to share with you today using the Rubbernecker Poinsettias #2, Holly and Borders #3.  There is something so interesting to me about all white images on a project.  The flowers and holly on this card take on the appearance of bisque.   As much as I love making an all white card it is always hard to get good pictures.  I like using white backgrounds for my photos but this time I used a pale pink paper in the background in hopes that the card would show up better.

Come see how I made this white on white poinsettias and holly card.

The Poinsettia

  • Cut the poinsettia and tiny flowers using white cardstock.
  • Lay the flower sections face down on the molding pad and push down and roll each petal using the large round stylus.
  • Lay the flower sections face up on the molding pad and push down in the center using a smaller tipped stylus to push all the petals up.
  • Attach the sections together using glossy accents offsetting each layer to form a natural looking flower.
  • Form the tiny flowers using a small tipped stylus and molding pad.
  • Attach the tiny flowers in the poinsettia center using glossy accents.

 

Come see how I made this elegant white on white poinsettias and holly card.

The Holly

  • Cut sections of holly using white cardstock.
  • Gently form and shape the holly leaves with your fingers to add dimension.

The Poinsettia and Holly Arrangement

  • Cut the decorative border layer using white cardstock and attach to the card base using mounting tape.
  • Attach the poinsettia to the card base using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the holly sections under the poinsettia leaves and attach using glossy accents.

 

Come see how I made this lovely white on white poinsettias and holly card.

This white on white poinsettias and holly card will be the last Christmas project I make this year.  I always feel a little sad when we come to the close of the card making holiday season but it’s always fun to look forward to making pretty spring projects.  Thank so much for coming by and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with you family and friends.
