Build Your Own Poinsettia

Elaine here again with my third Christmassy card - this one uses the Bumper Winter Leaves Stamp set and the Christmas Wreath Stamp set.

This time I've used the 3 different sized Poinsettia leaves and the centre from the Bumper Winter leaves set - these have been embossed (four times) with Red powder on card coloured with Jubilee Red Ink in a Bottle and Valentine Pigment Ink. I've also embossed another 4 of the larger leaf with Welbeck Green powder on a card sprayed with Citrus Lime Ink in a Bottle. I've arranged the leaves into a flower using silicone glue for dimension and added some red seed beads to the centre. As it's Christmas I've also added touches of Lime Green and Christmas Red Stickles.

The card is an easel card and I've used the solid leaves from the Christmas Wreath Stamp set to decorate the base. The Happy Christmas is also from this set.

I hope you have enjoyed my cards this week. I'm happy as I've now got 3 cards I can post this year!! I've also got lots of leaves left over from the original A4 sheet sprayed green and A5 sprayed red so I'm off to make more.

Lynnda has lots of other Christmassy (and non-Christmassy) stamps on the website so go check it out HERE. There's still plenty of time to make cards and if you've done all your cards, then there is gift wrap and tags to make too!!
