This is a card I made with a PSX Poinsettia stamp that I got at a yard sale some time ago. I just love the bright vibrant colors of that very pretty Christmas Flower. The center of the poinsettia has gold seed beads that I glued in the middle.Here is a nice close up of the poinsettia. I stamped them three times with gold embossing powder and water colored them with Rangers Distress Fired Brick Distress Ink. Then I went over the top of the flowers and the leaves with glitter pens. IRL the poinsettia are glistening. I distressed the edges of the scalloped nesties and this Spellbinders Fancy Tag with Versamark's Brilliance Gold Galaxy ink. The sentiment was gold embossed. I used the new Martha Stewart doily lace trim punch. (I really like that one-and see myself using it a lot...good investment)
This is the inside of my card. I made the holly with Martha Stewart's branch punch. I highlighted the center of all the pretty flowers in the lace with red rhinestones.
One last look at the whole card. I stamped the corner of my envelop with the stamp and water-colored and glittered to match the main image. I hope you enjoyed viewing my card as much as I enjoyed making it. I love Christmas and will be making lots of Christmas cards. I hope you get some inspiration and create some poinsettia of your own!
