T his elegant Christmas card uses two papers from the Poinsettia Place paper pack in the Stampin’ Up! August - December mini catalog. I fussy cut the flowers on the front from one of the pretty papers in the pack.
Card Base: Cut Soft Suede 8 ½ X 11 paper in half widthwise. You now have two pieces 8 ½ X 5 ½ . Fold one of the pieces in half lengthwise for your card front. The card front now measures 4 ¼ X 5 ½.
Card Mat: Cut Very Vanilla paper 4 X 5 1/4
Card Front: Cut Soft Suede pine cone print paper from Poinsettia Place paper pack 3 7/8 X 5 ⅛
Attach pine cone print to Very Vanilla mat. Emboss this piece with Subtle embossing folder. Attach to the card front.
Die cut label using die from Hippo & Friends die set. Stamp sentiment with Mossy Meadow ink.
Fussy cut two poinsettia. I used the paper that had the larger flowers on it, that paper had pine cones on it also.
Attach 1 poinsettia to the far left of the card front. Attach a label to the card front over part of the flower (see picture).
Attach 2nd flower offset (so leaves from flower on card show between the leaves of 2nd flower. I attached the second flower with dimensionals. I then used Wink of Stella on any of the soft suede color on the petals.
For the inside of your card, cut a piece of Very Vanilla 4 X 5 ¼. I stamped the sentiment with Mossy Meadow ink and the poinsettia with soft suede ink before attaching this piece inside your card.
