Beautiful Luxe Poinsettia

KayM-Nov15-14b

 

Hello! As we are nearing the Holiday season, my thoughts have turned to creating Christmas cards to send to my friends and family. This lovely card was created with the beautiful Luxe Poinsettia outline and background dies.

I first printed a sentiment from my computer, and stenciled the background with the Texture Tessatina  designer stencil from Memory Box. After that I cut the poinsettia background out of the light green color, and both shades of the red. I cut the poinsettia outline out of the darker green and again both shades of the red. I then layered the outlines over the backgrounds and glued those down. After all my pieces were assembled, I adhered the red flowers together with foam tape. I cut the green flower apart and used each petal seperately to create leaves for my flower gluing each one behind the red flower petals. Next I cut a center out of yellow card stock using the snowflake from Christmas Baubles die set. I glued two to the center of my flower and added a small gem in the middle.  I then adhered the entire flower with leaves to my stenciled panel and added that to a red card base with foam tape.

The dimension you can create with this die is just lovely! I hope you have a wonderful crafty holiday season!
