Pretty Poinsettias

Hi!  Taking a little break from Fall cards to bring you this set made with the Poinsettia Petals bundle in the August-December mini.

For each of the cards, the base is the Gold Cards and Envelopes featured on page 51 of the August-December mini.  I love the gold edging on these cards and felt it coordinated well with the Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper.

Poinsettia Petals, Christmas, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #AugDecMini

For this card, I stamped the poinsettia in Soft Suede ink and stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock.  I used the two smaller poinsettias to make the one.  The leaves are done with Old Olive ink on Old Olive cardstock.  The sentiment is heat embossed in Gold Embossing Powder and die cut with a die from the Stitched So Sweetly die set.

To “round” the corners of the Designer Series Paper and NOT cover the design in the corners of the base case, I used the Everyday Label punch.  Flip over the punch and stick the corner of the Designer Series Paper into the corner of the punch!

The beaded pearls are the perfect finishing touch for the card.

Here is the 2nd version – just change up the Designer Series background paper:

And the 3rd:

Poinsettia Petals, Poinsettia Place, Christmas, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #AugDecMini

Changing it up a little more for the next one:

Poinsettia Petals, Poinsettia Place, Christmas, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #AugDecMini

Here I used Real Red cardstock and Real Red ink for the poinsettia to coordinate better with the Designer Series Paper.

And lastly:

Poinsettia Petals, Poinsettia Place, Christmas, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #AugDecMini

For this one, I used markers to color the Pine branch and pine cone and then fussy cut around them (the die doesn’t get as close I liked, so I trimmed them further with Paper snips).  A little linen thread was used to make a bow for the beaded pearls to sit on.

This suite would be perfect for your Christmas cards and the Gold cards and envelopes the perfect backdrop for this gorgeous paper.  I hope you’ll check it out!

Thanks for stopping by!
