Christmas Poinsettia

Hi peeps! Vera here today. Only 6 more days till Christmas! And, yes, yours truly is still working on her Christmas cards. Hah… I am a firm believer in that better late than never in this case.  😉

Anyway, for today, I decided to play with the beautiful Coming Up Poinsettia set.

I ink up the gradient background by using masking tape to cover the border. Once that done, I stamped, heat embossed the poinsettia with Rose Gold embossing powder on a piece of watercolor cardstock. Then I went to town watercolor this beauty. Let dry.

Now, when I am stress out sometime I feel the need to do fussy cutting and that’s what I did here. I don’t know what is it about fussy cutting that help me in calming down my stress or frustration. It’s like cheap therapy. Hah!!

Once that done, I layer the panel on dark green cardstock and adhere the poinsettia with foam adhesive. Follow by stamping the Merry Christmas sentiment from Good Tidings Cluster set on a strip of cardstock and again adhere to the card with foam adhesive. I just like layering this way. Finish by adding some mix size dew drops.

This color combo not quite the standard Christmas color, but  not too far off, either in my opinion. Ahh, the beauty of art and crafting,right? You can use whatever colors that make you happy. Try out new combo, just have fun!

Well peeps, that’s all from me today. Hope you enjoy today’s inspiration and if you’re behind like me on your Christmas cards, just keep chugging along. 😉 Cheers……

Vera
