Poinsettia


Today I finished another Christmas card. I used a new die I bought at a craft booth on our local market.
It's a poinsettia die from poppy stamps.

I die cut the flower three times, using white glitter paper, vellum and beige cardstock.
The golden bit behind the sentiment and flower is gold angelwire paper.


I made the background in Photoshop, it's kind of a frosting idea in light brown colors.
The snowflakes are punched out of glitter paper. The sentiment is a stamp from a previous Simon says stamp card kit.

I'm entering this card in these challenges:


Have a great day! Hugs, Henriëtte.

Love the classic elegance of this lovely cream card. Wonderful use of the poinsettia die, as it certainly made a lush flower with the layers you've added. Like the circle layout of your card with the flower tucked at the edge...so very pretty. Just became your newest follower, and thanks for joining in with HLS October Christmas Challenge. Have a great week. TFS
