Watch this video https://youtu.be/1INCr0klRIQ to see how to shape the Sparkling Poinsettia.
Instructions: Use Library Green Archival Ink to stamp 2 sets of both the Large Sparkling Poinsettia and the Sparkling Poinsettia onto white cardstock. Emboss with Clear EP. Die cut. Spray with Art Anthology Spray and shape with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Sponge with Carmine Red Stamp Paint. Tap with Gold Stamp Paint. Once the flowers are dry, stack them together. Use your finger to gently tap Picket Fence Distress Paint onto the creases of the petals to give them a snowy appearance. Sponge the leaves with Library Green Archival Ink, then blend in the Spectrum Noir CT2 ink to shade the leaves. Brush lightly with Glass Bead Glitter. Fill the flower centers with the die cut berries. Use Art Institute glue to add Czech beads to flower centers. Set the flowers aside to dry thoroughly.
Trace around the chipboard shape onto the burgundy background paper. Cut out, distress edges, paint edges with Aged Mahogany Distress Paint and then sponge with Gold Stamp Paint. Trace around the chipboard shape once again, this time onto scrap paper. Fold the paper in half, and trim about 1/2" off all the way around the folded shape. Trace this smaller shape onto the grey patterned section of the "Joy to the World" paper from the collection. Distress the edges and then paint the edges with Aged Mahogany Distress Paint. Use Memento London Fog Ink to stamp the Sparkling Poinsettia Notes background stamp randomly onto the grey lattice background piece. Then use Library Green Archival Ink to stamp holly swirls around the edges, as shown.
Die cut the Decorative Oval from white cardstock. Back with the burgundy patterned paper from the collection. Place in the center of the chipboard shape, as shown, but do not glue down yet. Fussy cut the poinsettias from the Joy to the World paper and layer them around the Decorative Oval Die, as shown. Glue everything down. Fussy cut the Joy to the World Banner and glue down so that the middle section is raised, as shown in the photo. Cut the journal card from the paper collection. Mat with gold foil cardstock and green foil cardstock, as shown. Use foam dots to secure to the chipboard shape, as shown.
Arrange the flowers and leaves around the chipboard, as shown. Use a hole punch to add ribbon and a fancy bow. Fill the berries in the Holly Swirls Stamp with Christmas Red Stickles. Let Dry.
