Hi stamping friends and welcome back to my paper crafting blog. Todays share is the Stampin Up Christmas Quilt Poinsettia card. I love poinsettias at Christmas (especially the pink and white ones) so yesterday I figured out how to make a Stampin Up Poinsettia.
In the last post I shared, I had been creating with the Christmas Quilt Bundle on pages 5-6 of the Holiday Catalogue. There is a lovely suite of products there in the traditional holiday colours, well as you know – I’m far from traditional haha, so here’s a black and white Christmas card, with gold highlights of course.
We will get back to quilting for the next post, but for today I wanted to share how easy it is to create these pretty flowers and of course I included the Pretty Pines Thinlits to create my background foliage.
The main part of the flower is cut from Gold Foil Sheet and the petals are an overlay cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.
Here is a little step-by-step picture for you – I find they often help don’t you? It’s super easy and only takes a minute.
Then add them as the center of attraction to your card.
Sandi’s Tips & Tricks for the Stampin Up Christmas Quilt Poinsettia Card:
- Gold emboss the sentiment at the bottom of the black panel
- Use the Corner Rounder punch at the top of the envelope punch board to round the bottom two corners
- Run a strip of the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape Across the top
- Cut ad add the white pine boughs, I cut 3 small and 3 medium
- Cut the leafy branches and the sticks from Gold Foil Sheet
- Use Multipurpose glue to attach everything to the card front
- Use Dimensionals to attach the Poinsettia
- and – the gold faceted gems are the perfect flower center!
