I love fussy cutting so stamped the poinsettia twice and also stamped two of the leaves. I heat embossed them in white and then watercoloured them. I fussy cut one whole poinsettia and then just the centre part of the other, shaped them a bit, and attached them partly flush to the cs and partly popped up with foam tape.
I have a very hard time doing any stamping off the edge or partial image things, but for this one, I made myself trim off part of the poinsetta. It's on a raised centre panel, but it seems odd to me. Maybe I'd be happier if it went off the actual edge of the card. But other than that I am please with the card. A lovely cluster of off-white pearl embellishments fill the centre and I used a Happy Little Stampers Christmas sentiment that balanced the space nicely.
You've got till the end of October to make a poinsettia card for Happy Little Stampers so please join in!
