Happy Holidays

by Yoonsun Hur

Happy Thursday crafty friends! It's Yoonsun here and today I have a Christmas card to share with you using the Build-A-Flower: Poinsettia, along with other products. The poinsettia is one of the plants traditionally used as a Christmas decoration, so it makes me feel excited about Christmas approaching!!

To create this card, I stamped & die cut the layered poinsettia from the Build-A-Flower: Poinsettia set. I used (from light to dark) Ruby Red, Velvet, and Dark Chocolate dye inks for solid images, and then Jet Black dye ink for outlined image. I then heat embossed the sentiment from the Holiday Wishes set on dark brown card stock in white, and then trimmed it down as a small banner.

For the background, I die cut the Striped Leaf Cover from kraft card stock, and then mounted the “Striped Leaf” panel on a kraft card base using foam tape. I added white ink splatters here and there. I added a Gold Fenstone Decorative Element, poinsettia die cut, and sentiment banner in order using foam tape as well. To finish it off, I added white dots using Nuvo Simply White Crystal Drops.

This card is perfect! I love the Layered Poinsettia against the kraft card base! Poinsettias are one of my two favorite flowers. Sunflowers are the second favorite! You have created a very lovely card! TFS!
