Poinsettia Christmas

Hello everyone!  Today's project is another Christmas card using the Five Petal flower punch.  I'm on a roll with my Christmas cards and don't know how long this mojo will last. 

The base of the card is Whisper White with the first layer embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  Then I took a piece of Gold Mirror cardstock from my stash and ran it through my Big Shot using the Bigz Oval Scallop Frame.  I centered the scallop frame and adhered it to the first embossed layer. 

Then, I embossed another piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and ran it through my Big Shot using the Bigz Oval Scallop Frame.  Using only the center oval, I adhered it inside the gold scalloped frame.  

The poinsettia flowers are made by punching two Five Petal Flowers for each flower out of Real Red cardstock and sponging the edged with Red Red ink.  I scored down the center of each petal using my piercing tool and creased the petals up a little.  I attached one flower on top of the other staggered using a pop up glue dot.  I didn't have any small gold rhinestones for the centers of the flowers, so I used yellow Stickles. 

The leaves are cut from Old Olive cardstock with the Little Leaves Sizzlits Die.  I also scored the center of the leave the same as the flower. 

The greeting is from the A Cardinal Christmas stamped in Basic Black on Whisper White cardstock and matted with a piece of the gold mirror cardstock.  I attached this with dimensional to the center oval.

I hope this card gives you some creativity and inspiration.  I would love to hear from you if you liked todays project. 

Thanks for looking.
