Poinsettia by Jen Shults

I had so many ideas for this sketch I didn’t know where to start! I’m hoping I’ll get more time this weekend to make more cards with this sketch because I think it’s just perfect for whipping up lots of different quick Christmas Cards.

When I started working on this one I dug through all of my Christmas dies and came upon this Poinsettia Die from Taylored Expressions and from there I knew exactly where this card was going. I started with a cardbase made with Sweet Basil cardstock and layered it with Chocolate Truffle and Buttercream Frosting cardstock. I embossed the Buttercream with the Lots of Dots Embossing Folder. For the center I cut two circles with Spellbinders circle dies, one out of sweet basil and one from Chocolate Truffle. From there used scalloped Totally Tags die to make the Buttercream circle. The poinsettia is cut out of Cherry Pop and the leaves are out of Sweet Basil. I used Gold Doodlebug Sprinkles for the center of the flower. The twine wrapped around the middle of the card is Burlap Twine.

I also entered my card in the Die Cut Diva’s Holiday challenge.
