Poinsettia!


Hello Everyone!!  The Power Poppy release for October is well underway and today we are showcasing a beautiful set called Poinsettia!  Considering here in the Southern Hemisphere there is no snow and it's always so hot and humid at Christmas time, I love using Poinsettia themed cards for Christmas!
This was a fun and quick card that I think you could reproduce fairly quickly if you needed to send several at Christmas time!  I've used a base of Old Olive and layered with white (stamping the sentiment from Poinsettia at the bottom in black), So Saffron (border punched) and some 12 Days of Christmas MME DP.  Around this I've added white and yellow ribbons and added a yellow bow.  I've stamped the stocking from Poinsettia in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (G40, G43, G46, Y21, Y35, Y38, R32, R35, R37, W1, W3, N1).  I've then fussy cut it out and popped it up on foam tape.  To finish I've added a green button tied with gold cord and a few clear rhinestones!
