Triangular Poinsettia

This week's SCS Ways to Use It challenge is "Shape Up" - a card in any shape except squares or rectangles. And also add some pink to honour  Breast Cancer Awareness month.

I have some triangular card bases in my stash so this was a perfect opportunity to use one. I coloured my poinsettia with a mix of red and pink markers to get in the pink for the challenge.

I cut a slightly smaller white triangle and embossed it with the SU ef with small triangles on it.

The poinsettia and holly spray are by Local King (a Vancouver company) and some of their stamps come with matching dies. I coloured directly onto the stamp with their markers which are meant to be layered over each other, so started with two shades of pink and added a bit of red at the base of each petal.

I'm also posting it in the Happy Little Stampers "Poinsettia" Christmas Challenge.

Stamps: Local King poinsettia, Stampendous joy

  1. What a beautiful poinsettia with the holly, Susan! Love the triangle shape!

  2. An unusual idea to have a christmas card symbolic Christmas tree shape. The beautiful center of the card. A magnificent flower and beautiful holly. Thank you for sharing your Happy Little Stampers.
