Poinsettia

For some reason I am loving poinsettias this year. I found another poinsettia that I don't think I ever used in a retired Stampin' Up! set called Holiday Minis. I made this card for my Stampers' 10 swap. In my mind this card was a simple and quick card, but as usual, I kept adding elements that made it a more time-consuming card. But, I enjoyed making it! I was inspired by Anna Wight's card on her fantastic blog: http://sweetmissdaisy.typepad.com/sassy_sweet_notes/2008/11/be-warm.html


I love the red and kraft paper together and the layout. For my card I stamped the snowflakes on kraft paper with Whisper White. The poinsettia is embossed with gold on the kraft card stock and painted with inks. When everything was put together, I added white opal liquid pearls to the poinsettia and the middle of the snowflakes. The word Peace is also from the Holiday Minis set. I hope this card puts you in the holiday spirit!
