I am so excited to be back on the blog again today. For today’s project, I am sharing a Christmas card that was inspired by one of the most well-known Christmas flowers of all time. And that is the flower, Poinsettias. Every year during Christmas, I fill my home with this flower. It’s just so beautiful, and it smells so wonderful. I was excited when the shop released the Seasonal Christmas Flowers stamp set. I knew I needed to create a card with it.
I colored the Poinsettias using Copic markers and gave them highlights using a white gel pen. For the background, I love creating a monotone effect using the wonderful Paper Glaze Velvet in the color Winter Snowfall. I applied the paper glaze onto white card stock using Winter Rings Stencil with my Mix Media Spatulas.
To add subtle interest to the card design, I added More Ash Leaves that I die-cut out of vellum. I adhered the flowers and leaves onto the card panel using a combination of foam squares and liquid adhesive.
The sentiment is from the Swanky Christmas Sentiment stamp set. I stamped the sentiment onto white card stock using black ink and used the coordinating dies to cut a few out of white card stock to layer it up to create dimension.
And to finish off the card, I adhered the card panel onto a matted gold rectangle and adhered it to a top folding card base. Added a few embellishments to the card panel, and that’s it!
I hope you found some inspiration and got crafty in your craft room.
Until next time!
Have a wonderfully blessed day,
