Pretty Poinsettia Card

As much as I like the new poinsettia stamp set in the Stampin’ Up! holiday catalog (and the sample made with it), I knew I should not buy it since I already have a barely used poinsettia stamp set. It inspired me to dig it out and make a card with it this year.
I stamped the images with Versamark ink onto colored card stock then heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I carefully trimmed out with scissors then glued the layers together to create the poinsettia.
An old shadow background stamp square (remember when those were so popular years ago?) was stamped with Gold Encore ink onto Whisper White card stock then run through and embossing folder in the Big Shot machine.
This was layered onto gold metallic and Real Red textured card stocks.
The finished card is 4.25” x 4.25” square.

Thanks for looking =)

  1. Beautiful!! I completely understand showing restraint on the new stamps! I really seem to have a hard time saying no to Christmas stamps, even though I really don't need new ones!!


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