Pretty in Pink Poinsettia

 I love Christmas cards in non-traditional colours! How about you? Today I'm going for pink, silver and Gray Granite with Sahara Sand. The pink is my favourite Petal Pink which goes so well with those neutrals, and I think the overall effect is quite elegant. I used the Poinsettia Dies, which bundle with the Poinsettia Petals stamp set, a gorgeous bundle which I think is one of the must haves of the Aug/Dec Mini Catalogue, if you don't yet have it! Honestly, you can whip up a poinsettia flower in minutes and it looks amazing, even without any ink at all, with those poinsettia embossing plates that you use at the same time as you die cut the layer of petals. And you can die cut all three layers in the same turn of the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine.

Here are some instructions:

  • On a Sahara Sand base I mounted a Silver Foil layer and a piece of Peony Garden Designer Series Paper in a subtle Gray Granite design, on top of that.
  • The sentiment, from the For Unto Us stamp set, is stamped in Sahara Sand ink, on Whisper White cardstock, then die cut with a Stitched Rectangle Die and backed with Silver Foil, die cut using a scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. Both are mounted flat using Stampin' Seal.
  • The poinsettia petals are die cut and embossed with the Poinsettia Dies from Petal Pink cardstock then shaped using a bone folder and layered using Glue Dots as the adhesive. 
  • Silver Foil is die cut for the center of the flower and the sprigs of berries layered behind the flower with the Whisper White berries. These are all dies from the Poinsettia Dies set. 
  • The sprigs of berries are added to the card front with strong adhesive such at Stampin' Seal+ placed behind where the flower will go and only a short length of the adhesive is needed to hold them.
Do you like traditionally coloured or non-traditionally coloured Christmas cards?
