We hope you are all enjoying our Holiday Blog Blitz and are finding beautiful ideas and inspiration along the way! Today, I am sharing a card that I have created with the beautiful Poinsettia Mini! Take a look!
I began with a completely different idea, but let the card take the shape of its own, and I love the final result! I began by cutting out seven tiny Poinsettia Mini pieces out of shiny, red foil paper, and set them aside. Originally I had planned to add a lot of snowflakes and fairies, but then I thought about a Christmas greenhouse, warm and balmy and filled with poinsettias! Native to Mexico, the poinsettia carries symbolic religious meaning in many countries. Did you know that in the United States, December 12 is National Poinsettia Day?
I used a handful of my favorite Poppystamps dies to create this sparkly card, and they all cut so well through thicker foil and glitter papers. I curled the leaves upward to add dimension, and mounted the tiny poinsettias with tiny bits of foam pop dots to raise them off the page just a touch. The centers are tiny silver pearls.
