Good morning! Although we are only one day away from Halloween, I just HAD to make a Christmas card today. One of my favourite Christmas "symbols" is the poinsettia. Again, I love flowers and the bold Cherry Cobbler by Stampin' Up is my favourite paper to use when making my poinsettias.
A few weekends ago, I picked up some card fronts from Simple Stories. These are cut to fit an A2 card. I loved the patterns of the papers and the poinsettia paper caught my eye right away. So I went to work and created the card using today's sketch. The paper had a lot of small dots on the greenery, so that represents all the dots in the sketch. This was such a simple card to throw together.
My poinsettia was created using the retired 5 petal punch. All you need to do is to punch out two flowers and layer them on top of each other. Then using the Boho Blossom Punch (also retired) punch out the largest flower and the smallest flower. Then I use dimensionals between each "bloom" to give the poinsettia some dimension. Then punch out a 5 petal bloom from Old Olive paper and add one half to the side of the poinsettia to be the "leaves". I adhere the green part with a glue dot.
Here is the sketch at CASE this Sketch...I hope you will come and play along with us this week!
