Stampin Up Poinsettia Petals Christmas Card Idea -Rosanne Mulhern

I’ve decided that the Poinsettia Petals bundle is my absolute favorite from the August-December 2020 catalog.  I’ve been creating with it non-stop over the past week and still have many more ideas.  One reason is that I love winter flowers like Poinsettias, Amaryllis, Christmas cactus and Paperwhites.  When it comes to Poinsettias, I’m drawn to the lighter colored rather than the traditional reds.  My pink-toned paper poinsettias on this card are a testament to that.

The poinsettias and berry sprigs were cut from shimmery white paper. I lightly sponged the poinsettias with Petal Pink ink.  The leaves are cut from Soft Sea Foam card stock.

For the flower centers, I cut a die from the Poinsettia dies and added rhinestones .  This really added to the richness of the card.  I’ll be adding these to other poinsettias I create.

    What a beautiful card. Live the detailing

  27. Rosanne

    Just wondering what color CS you used to cut the Ornate rectangle for front of the card. Not sure that was mentioned in your descriptions and measurements. If I missed it I am sorry!
    I love this card and want to CASE it with things I have like what you’ve used.
    Thanks for sharing your beautiful creativity!

    • Nancy, I used a non-SU silver card stock that I purchased at Michaels. I think any kind of metallic would look good. You could also use an embossing folder on a piece of gray card stock for a bit of texture.

  28. Holy cow, I think I’ve found my favorite Christmas card of all time. Those colors are incredible! Thank you for sharing your talent.
