Holiday Star with Pink Poinsettias


My finished card size is 6" x 6". I made my card base using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper because it is such a nice weight and can hold anything you mount on top. Make card base and cover with a piece of paper from sheet 10A of the paper collection.

Cut the Courtyard Elegance Die using white cardstock and using a Hydra Sponge and Dries Clear Adhesive add glitter to the die cut. Allow to dry and then glue to the card base.

Using Distress Ink Chipped Sapphire and stamp the star onto white cardstock. Cut out using the center of the coordinating die and set aside. Using Vibrant Violet Stazon Ink stamp the star onto a piece of Luxe Silver Cardstock and emboss with Silver embossing powder. Let it cool and then cut out the star with coordinating die. Glue the smaller star that was stamped in Chipped Sapphire onto the embossed star using a dimensional dot in the center. This makes a star medallion for the center of the card. I used Double Dots to adhere to the card front.

Cut out the sign die twice, once with white cardstock and once with Luxe Silver Cardstock and glue together offsetting a bit so the silver shows through behind the white piece. I used a stamping platform to situate the sentiment and then stamp using Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. I added dimensional tape behind the sign to adhere to card front

Now lets work on the poinsettia flowers. I stamped the petals using embossing ink and embossed with Silver embossing powder. I did the same for the Holly petals. I colored the flower petals with Magenta Hue and the Holly is colored with Viridian ink. Use coordinating dies to cut out and then lay onto the mold. Spritz with water and run through the die cut machine. Turn out onto the desk to dry. Glue two flower petals together and then glue a Holly piece behind the flowers. Allow to dry. Add Prills to the centers of the flowers and allow to dry. Decide on placement of the flowers and use hot glue to glue to card front.
