Good Sunday morning. I’m sure you all realize by now that I have gone crazy for paper flowers. When I saw the Spellbinder Layered Poinsettia die set I knew I had to have it for Christmas cards. It seems while I was shopping on line recently I was so excited about purchasing this set that I accidentally put two in my shopping cart. I laughed out loud at myself when I opened my package and saw two of them had come with my order. I decided it would make perfect blog candy to accompany my post today. All you have to do to qualify is leave me a comment telling me your favorite style of Christmas card to make during the holidays.
I cut out three different sized red poinsettia blossoms and one large olive green blossom. I shaped the petals by rolling a stylus on the backside of the paper while laying on a mouse pad. I added depth to the flower by sponging on cranberry ink to each petal. I repeated the same with the green using peeled paint ink. Using glossy accents I attached each layer alternating the petals to create the flower. I cut the green leaves and attached them to the bottom of the flower allowing them to extend past the largest layer. I applied glossy accents to the head of three gold brads and dipped them in gold glitter and allowed to dry. I cut the clasps off the back of the brads and glued them in the center of the flower. I attached the flower to the sentiment layer of the card and then applied a few sprigs of punched pine to add softness. Here are a couple other views.
Thanks for stopping by. Don’t forget to leave a comment if you would like to be entered in the random drawing for the Layered Poinsettia set. I will announce the winner on my blog Wednesday morning, October 26th.
