CASEing Coast to Coast: Poinsettia Petals

Are you ready for another cross country stamping adventure with Karen Hallam and I?  This month Karen created this festive holiday card featuring the Poinsettia Petals Bundle available in the August-December 2020 mini catalog.

There was just so much to love about Karen’s card and so many CASEing (Copy and Selectively Edit) opportunities for me.  You can see Karen’s post HERE.  I chose to copy the layout and selectively edit the poinsettia.  Here’s what I came up with…

Stampin' Up! Poinsettia Petals Christmas Card Idea - Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

I knew I would really like this bundle, but until I used it for the first time making this card, I didn’t realize how MUCH I like it!  I actually purchased the entire Poinsettia Place Suite (something I don’t often do) and am so pleased with everything in it.  

On today’s card I used the Poinsettia Petals stamp set,  Poinsettia dies, Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper, and the Beaded Pearls (which are my favorite embellishments…ever!).

Materials & Measurement:

Whisper White card base:  11″ x 4 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″

Petal Pink card stock: 3 1/4″ x 5 1/2″

Plush Poinsettia DSP:  3″ x 5 1/2″

Silver Foil:  1/4″ x 5 1/2″ strips, cut 2

 

Stampin' Up! Poinsettia Petals Christmas Card Idea- Rosanne Mulhern stampinup

I created the sparkly poinsettias by using the Poinsettia dies and cutting the three different sized flowers from Petal Pink card stock.  After die cutting, I inked them with Versa Mark ink and sprinkled them generously with iridescent embossing powder.  Using the heat tool, I heat set them.  I love how pretty and shimmery they turned out.  I think these flowers look so elegant against the flocked pattern from the Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper collection.  Since this paper is basically a printed vellum, it was necessary to adhere it to the Petal Pink layer so you couldn’t see the adhesive.  After layering the poinsettias, I determined where I was going to place them on the card and added adhesive to the back of the vellum in those locations.  Then I popped the poinsettias on the vellum with Stampin’ Dimensionals, adding the Pear Pizzazz holly leaves and Whisper White berry sprigs. Lastly, I added the beaded pearls to the center of the flowers using several mini glue dots to make sure they were really secured.

The sentiment is stamped in Versa Mark and heat embossed with silver embossing powder.  I flagged the ends using a square punch.  Again, I  determined where the sentiment was going and added more adhesive to the back of the vellum in this area as well.  The sentiment is popped with dimensionals also.

For the envelope, I used Elmer’s spray adhesive on the flap to adhere the vellum and glued a 1/4″ strip of Petal Pink card stock across the top.

This is my first Christmas card of the year and I can say that creating this card has definitely put me in the mood to create more!

  10. Just gorgeous! just studding!

  11. What a gorgeous card! I had to make it as soon as I saw it. But what a mess I had. I thought I costed the flowers well w Versamark then sprinkled on Dazzling Diamonds. But no matter how long I heated them, the glitter kept coming off everywhere. Is there a trick I’m missing? I’m afraid by the time I send it, all the glitter will be gone 🙁
    Thanks again for a beautiful card and any tips u can think of.

    • Thank you Marti! I didn’t use Dazzling Diamonds on this card. After adding Versa Mark to the flowers, I sprinkled them with iridescent embossing powder (non-SU) and then heated them. The embossing powder melted onto the petals creating a pretty sparkle. That’s the only difference I can think of.

  12. That makes sense?. The iridescent embossing powder would melt with heat but the Dazzling Diamonds didn’t.
    I think I’ll try again with embossing powder. Thanks so much!
