Poinsettia Christmas Card by Alison Hall


Lately, I've been getting into Christmas card-making mode, and when I received the Birgit Koopsen Mixed Media Flowers stamp set no. 1 a couple of days ago, I thought it would make a great poinsettia.







Here's what I used...


White Card Blank - 6x6 ins square
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads - Festive Berries, Evergreen Bough
Silver Button


Here's what I did...


1. I began by stamping the Carabelle Studio large flower and the PaperArtsy sentiment onto the card blank, using the black ink.

2. Next, I stamped the large flower twice, and the small flower once, onto a piece of white card, using the black pigment ink, then I quickly applied clear embossing powder and heat set it with the heat gun.

3.  I added some of the Distress Inks to my craft mat, then used a water brush to paint a large and small flower with Festive Berries, and three petals of the remaining large flower with Evergreen Bough.

4. I cut out the red flowers, and the three green petals, and adhered them as shown, on top of the stamped flower on the card. I added a silver button to finish.


I hope you like my simple Christmas card design. Adding some black glitter to the flower centre would be another option, and a bit cheaper to post of course.
