Pastel Poinsettia Card

Hello crafty friends,

One of the fun things about Christmas cards is they don't have to be traditional colors (red & green) to be beautiful.  I love that Poinsettias come in a few different colors so I decided to go with pink on my card.  



One of the things I really like in general about So Suzy Stamps is that the stamps are sized so that they can be used on a variety of card sizes.  This stamp is large enough that it can be a great focal point or stamped multiple times to cover a larger area.  The size I used today is an A2 sized card and 3 of the same stamp filled up one side.

I created a mask of the poinsettia stamp onto masking paper so I could stamp them to overlap each other along the right hand side.  I stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder before coloring the flowers with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers in various shades of light pink.  In this post, I cover masking in more detail.

I added gold Nuvo drops on the centers of each flower and set aside to dry.

I added a neutral patterned paper panel on the left hand side and used an edge die to create a decorative border, placing so it slightly overlaps the flowers.

The sentiment was stamped onto white cardstock (die cut with a stitched die) with Versamark, then heat embossed with green embossing powder.  This is one of my favorites because it has a gold-green sheen to it.  I popped up the sentiment on foam tape.

This completes my project - hope that it inspires you to give masking or pink colored poinsettias a try!

Hugs,
