Pretty Poinsettia Card

Today's share is a set of pretty poinsettia cards.
All supplies used were from Stampin' Up! 
with the exception of the yellow rhinestones.

The die cut white portion is actually the back of a precut card
that Stampin' Up! sold as part of a kit years ago. 
They had an interesting shape to them.
I cut the fronts from the backs on some of them
then glued them back on to a rectangular card base.
I liked this better because the recipient could stand the card up
if they wanted to display it. 
See one of the altered cards here

Moving on...... 

The die cut piece was run through a script embossing folder.
It was then adhered to Cherry Cobbler Coredinations textured card stock.

The rubber stamps are oldies,
Pretty Poinsettia (1999) and Holiday Greetings  .

The poinsettia image was stamped twice 
in two shades of red then trimmed out.
I cut the bottom image apart to make it slightly larger than the top
so it would show a bit better. 
The top image is attached with a dimensional. 
The leaves are all stamped individually in two shades of green
and cut out, too, then glued into place under the red flowers.

I cut a piece of white card stock then stamped the flowers again
as well as a simple greeting on it. Glued it inside the card.

Organdy ribbon and thin gold cord tied into a bow finish it off.

Thanks for looking and
Happy Holidays !

I'm entering my card in the current challene at Retro Rubber - Anything Goes 


  1. Such a lovely holiday card! I remember those products and am so glad you brought them out to make this fantastic card. Thank you for playing with us at Retro Rubber and hope you will be back in our gallery soon.

  2. I love poinsettias and am glad SU did another set very similar to this one since I was not cardmaking until 2008 or so. Very lovely card. I especially like the embossing! If you have the new Blends from SU, you can use Daffodil Delight to color the rhinestones... wasn't sure if you knew that! Thanks for sharing with Retro Rubber this challenge. Hope to see you play next challenge... :)


THANK YOU for taking the time to leave your comments. I hope I've inspired you to get a bit crafty today ;)
