Christmas in July – Poinsettia Card

This is the first project in my Christmas in July series. I love Christmas and with the release of the mini catalogue next month, it is the perfect excuse to make some Christmassy projects 😃

Poinsettia Petals and Poinsettia Dies – Annual Catalogue 2021/2022 pages 92 and 165

Base Card – Mossy Meadow cardstock 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ scored and folded @4 1/8″
1st layer – Basic White Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″
Poinsettias – Real Red Cardstock 8″ x 3 1/2″
Leaves – Mossy Meadow Cardstock 15″ x 3″
Label – Mossy Meadow Cardstock 3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″

Inside Layer – Basic White Cardstock 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″

The background is stamped with the Birch stamp. I used the Stamparatus to stamp the image.

The sentiment was stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in copper.

I love Poinsettias and the dies add such texture to the flowers, making them look more life like. In the new mini catalogue we have the red velvet paper making a comeback which will be perfect for these.

On Tuesday, I will be bringing you a project from our new mini catalogue.

Until next time, happy crafting
