Poinsettia Card Set

Poinsettias in red are so elegant for Christmas. They come in many different colours but red just always works. 

These images were stamped, stencilled and die cut and I used them on three different cards. 

The wreath image was used on the first card. I also die cut a vellum wreath, cut it apart and adhered the leaves behind the wreath. The front was die cut using a stitched rectangle die and then splattered with three shimmer brushes. The wreath was adhered slightly offset and the sentiment was placed across the centre. The splattered piece was adhered to gold foil and then to a red base. On each card, I added gold Stickles to the centres of the flowers and brushed the berries with a gold shimmer brush. 

Here is a close-up photo to show the shimmer and Stickles. 

I used some of the smaller images for the second card. A diamond grid was die cut three times and stacked. The sentiment was die cut from red glitter paper and the poinsettia groups were arranged in opposite corners.  

The reminder of the smaller images were used on the last card. A stitched lattice background was die cut and set on a piece of dark green cardstock. The sentiment was die cut from red glitter paper and the images were adhered in opposite corners. 

I love how these turned out (made two of each for a set of six). This set of cards will be delivered to a lovely lady from my church who sends almost as many cards as I send!
