Tattered Poinsettia

Good Saturday morning.  I love making poinsettia Christmas cards and today I have used the Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia. I paired the poinsettia with a lovely poinsettia pattern designer paper from Tina Wenke.

I created a double matted frame using both sections of the designer paper. I attached the coordinating papers to a piece of cardstock to create a sturdy base and then cut the frame openings.  I mounted on the care base with mounting tape.


I cut the poinsettia out of the coordinating red paper, distressed the back of the petals and attached each layer of the flower together with a small piece of mounting tape. I attached the flower to the frame base with glossy accents. I cut another large layer of the poinsettia using artichoke cardstock to create the poinsettia foliage tucked them in under the red petals and attached using glossy accents.

I attached several pine sprigs cut with the Twig Wreath set to add softness around the flower. I thought a little red ribbon and a big white pearl would be the perfect finish.KC Sizzix Tattered Poinsettia 1 left
