Morning Bloggers,

Today I'm sharing this very simple Poinsettias card -

The stamp is from the Creative Expressions Tatty Button Poinsettias set. This is a lovely set which includes some candles with some holly and two different poinsettias. I've used it in so many different ways this year.

The poinsettia was stamped six times in jet black archival and embosssed with Cosmic Shimmer clear embossing powder. I coloured them in using Scarlet Flame from the Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks and used Ancient Copper Cosmic Shimmer Mica Drawing Ink in the centres. On three of the images I only coloured in the centre four leaves. I then cut them all out.

I shaped the three complete images and used Pinflair Glue Gel to add them to my ivory card. I then shaped the other three smaller layers and popped them on top.

I stamped the sentiment in jet black archival and embossed it with clear powder. I cut it out using a Spellbinders Double-Ended Tag Die. I cut another tag out using red card and cut it in the middle length ways and added it to the back of the sentiment to create a layer.

The card was assembled as shown using ivory and red card. I added some Toffee Beige Vintage ribbon before adding the image panel. I added a few faux pearls which were made with Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Berry Red. The paper is Bo Bunny.

I'm sharing this card with Make It Monday

Hope you like the card.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Beautifully assembled poinsettia card! Your layering of them and then curling up the edges of the petals really just made this stand out!
    Wonderfully elegant colors for the Christmas season as well. Nicely done. ;)
