Poinsettia Card

Ingredients:

Card/Paper: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red, Whisper White, Holiday Treasures Designer Paper
Ink: Old Olive
Stamps: Season of Joy, Seasonal Wishes
Other:5/8" grosgrain ribbon old olive, gold sequins

Method:

I used the Stampin' Up! 5 Petal flower punch to punch out two red and one green shape for each poinsettia flower. Then I snipped between the petals towards the centre a little, before putting vein markings on both red and green pieces using a DEET tool in the same way that the leaves were made in this tutorial. Layered the pieces with a spot of pva, and stuck three cupped sequins in the centre of each flower.

The background to the flowers was stamped using the flourish stamp from Season of Joy, and the greeting from Seasonal Wishes. Mounted onto Chocolate Chip, with a strip of Holiday Treasures designer paper across the bottom. Fixed on the ribbon before mounting all onto an Old Olive card base. The card is a C6 size.
