To start I inked up the stencil with Cobalt Breeze, Irish Blooms, Deep Peony and Lemon Drop. Then I die cut the Poinsettia using Jumbo Poinsettia Coordinating Die. Add some stickles to the center of the flower and let dry. While it dry, I worked on the background using one of my favorite background die, the Quilted A2 Coverplate Die. I just love the dainty design with the teeny tiny hearts.
For extra interest, I decided to use one of the leftover frame from previous projects that I had cut using Rectangle A2 Frames Slim Borders die set. Then, arrange all the elements on the card. I used foam adhesive on the top part of the Poinsettia and straight up glue on the bottom part to give a little dimension. I do have tendency to create using non traditional color and I sure love the way this card turned out.
The color gradient on the Poinsettia made it pop against the soft color background. What do you think? Anyway, that’s all from me. I hope you enjoy today’s inspiration and I wish you all a wonderful weekend. Cheers…..
