Festive Christmas Floral Bouquet


Card size: 6 1/2 x 7 1/2" (overall with décor hanging over edges). Start with top fold white card stock measuring 4 x 5” (folded), Place the Urn die over the folded top so that top edge cutting line is just above the fold. Stamp and die cut another urn from decorative gold paper, color shadows then glue it to the folded urn card base. Sponge inside of card base with Scattered Straw Distress Ink.

Die cut the Starry Night decorative die from white 2 times, then glue them together (for strength). Glue the bottom of the die cut to the top of the urn in front so that card can be fully opened. Sponge top of Starry Night die cut with Scattered Straw Ink.

Stamp several poinsettia blossoms in 4 sizes using Vermillion Ink then sponge with Carnation Red Ink, also highlight with some Scattered Straw ink. Stamp the Stamen in red and Scattered Straw in all the sizes, sponge with Scattered Straw, these will make their own little “different” flowers. Stamp the leaves and sprays with Library Green, sponge with Fern Green and Leaf Green. Die cut then place in the Shaping Mold (see video) to shape flowers and leaves. Shape the sprays from the back with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.

For the poinsettia, glue 2 to 4 layers together to make flowers and insert yellow pearl stamen. For the “different” flowers, glue 2 to 3 layers of the stamped stamens together either mixed red and scattered Straw or just 1 or the other to form little rounded petal flowers. Insert red pearl stamen in each center.

Place some waxed paper or plastic under the starry night die (because of the large openings) while gluing flowers, leaves and sprays on to make a bouquet in the urn. Start with the sprays in front and around edges of urn and Starry Night die cut, then add poinsettia, leaves and small gold flowers. Insert Rose Hip Stamen in gold and red colors to add to the overall look of the bouquet. Cut pieces of gauze and spread them/fray them then tuck them into the bouquet here and there. Glitter all the flowers.

Stamp the sentiment on white cardstock using Vermillion ink then die cut with the small tag in Ticket and Tags Die. Sponge the edges with Scattered Straw. Stamp the cardinal using Tuxedo Black Memento then color and die cut. Cut off other bird and greenery then glue it onto the spray at top right side of bouquet.

Make a multi-loop bow from red ribbon (dyed seam binding used in this sample [using a refill ink bottle and a tiny bit of water in a zip-lock bag with the seam binding], purposely left crinkled). Glue it under some foliage but on top of the tag on the left side (to balance with bird on the top right).

Mix tiny a bit of Shimmer additive with lacquer then paint it onto the greenery.
