I used the Poinsettia Petals bundle (Poinsettia Petals stamp set and Poinsettia Dies) to make today’s Christmas card. I also used the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper and Real Red Sheer Ribbon, all from the Poinsettia Place Suite Collection. A few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels add a sparkly little touch.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Real Red card stock (CS) cut to 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, then scored in half at 4-1/4″
  • Soft Suede CS layer cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Bumblebee CS layer cut to 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″
  • Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper (DSP) layer cut to 5″ x 3-3/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Poinsettia Petals stamp set:

  • 1 small, 1 medium, and 2 large poinsettias in Real Red ink onto a scrap of Real Red CS
  • sentiment in Garden Green ink onto the Whisper White CS for the inside of the card base

Cut using the Poinsettia Dies:

  • the 4 stamped poinsettias
  • flower center from a scrap of Bumblebee CS

Colored using a Stampin’ Write Marker:

  • center of smallest flower in Soft Suede, so it will show through the holes in the die cut flower center

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Soft Suede CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • Bumblebee CS layer glued onto the Soft Suede CS layer
  • DSP layer glued onto the Bumblebee CS layer
  • Real Red Sheer Ribbon cut to about 15″, folded into thirds, and adhered onto the DSP layer using Stampin’ Seal +
  • poinsettia petals curled down using a Bone Folder
  • poinsettias layered and glued together in the center
  • die cut flower center glued onto the center of the top poinsettia
  • Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals applied onto the underside of the bottom poinsettia petals, where they are curved
  • poinsettia stack adhered over the ribbon using the Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals under the petals and Stampin’ Seal + in the center
  • 3 Red Rhinestones applied onto the DSP layer
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
