White Christmas Poinsettia

Good morning and Happy Tuesday!  Today I'd like to share another Christmas card made with the Blossom   Petals Builder punch.

The base of my card is Real Red and the first layer is Whisper White embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, then I cut the center out using the third die from the Labels Collection Framelits.

I punched eleven of the smallest petals in Whisper White for the flower and five in Garden Green for the leaves from the Blossom Petals Builder punch and creased the center of each petal and added veins with the Paper-Piercing Tool on a mouse pad.  I then cut the pointed six petal flower from the Boho Blossoms punch for the base in which to glue the white petals.

After gluing the six white petals to the base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, I then glued the other five as shown.  The five green leaves are attached to the bottom of the flower and I added four pearls to the center of the flower.  

I dug out my retired Sizzlit Swirls Scibbles die and cut two scrolls. I could have used the Little Leaves Sizzlits die # 114511 in place of the scrolls.  The gold branches were punched with a non-Stampin' Up punch.  

I stamped the greeting in Jet Black Stazon on Whisper White using the "Merry Christmas" stamp from More Merry Messages stamp set then used a square punch to create the flags on each end.  The greeting is attached with dimensionals.
