Hello friends! I have a card to share with you today that features the new Layered Poinsettia Die Set from Sunny Studio Stamps. To start my card, I first created my poinsettia by cutting the various layers in different shades of red card stock. I also cut one layer of leaves from green card stock. In order to get the illusion of added depth, I blended each piece lightly on the edges with some Distress Ink that was slightly darker than the card stock itself.
Also, I used small pieces of 3D Adhesive Foam Squares when adding each layer to also add some more dimension. If you preferred less dimension, you’d simply need to glue your layers together. Once my flower was assembled, I set it aside and worked on my card background. Since I loved the look of the Woodgrain Embossing Folder on my previous card, I used the same technique on this card. I added some brown ink to the front panel of my embossing folder and ran a piece of 4.25″x4.25″ Kraft card stock through my machine. I then layered this woodgrain piece with both a square white and green piece of card stock.
For some added interest, I diecut another piece of green card stock with the Snowflake Circle Frame Die and added this to the center of my card. I then used this set to also cut some white snowflakes as accents. For my sentiment, I used the “Wishes” word die from the Layered Snowflake Frame Die and diecut my sentiment from white card stock.
I glued this piece to the front of my card and added the word “Christmas” (from the Merry Mice Stamps Set) by heat embossing it with Fine Detail White Embossing Powder onto a strip of black card stock. Lastly, I added a few small White Pearls to the centers of my snowflakes and poinsettia.
