Simple Poinsettia Card | Video

Hi there! Today I'm sharing a super easy, simple Poinsettia card.  I sat down to make this only having a vague idea what I was going to make, and it took me just under 17 minutes from start to finish.  I do think this would be a fun card to create in multiples, if you are still looking for ideas for your Christmas cards.  

This simple and fun Christmas card features a non-traditional pop of Pool color behind the more traditional red and green.  Featuring stamps from Fun Stampers Journey.

For today's card, I used the Poinsettia Burst Stamps, and the coordinating dies, along with the Flannel Life Background Stamp - all from Fun Stampers Journey  (Affiliate links used, at no cost to you.) 


I began by stamping my flannel background with Cool Pool Ink.  Once stamped, I stamped the flowers with Cranberry Bliss Ink and immediately coated them with a blend of Clear Embossing Powder, and Sparkle Dust (2:1 ratio).  I heat set the embossing powder before die cutting the flowers out.  Then I trimmed the flannel panel to 3.25" x 4.5".

I laid the flowers out on the flannel panel, to figure out where to stamp the leaves, and then stamped the leaves in a triangular layout, using Fresh Forest Ink.  I attached the flowers using Easy Glide adhesive, and foam squares, and then attached the panel to an A2, side-folding, card base made from Whip Cream card stock.  A few scattered Fashion Gold pieces finished the card off.

I love the pop of Cool Pool behind the more traditional red and green colors.  I hope you enjoyed this card, and it inspired you.

Thanks for stopping by!
