Pink rippled poinsettias for Christmas

 How time flies - it is incredible that one moment it is March and the next we are preparing for Christmas.

I haven’t posted any blogs in some tine, but have made so many cards to inspire followers.

Today, I am giving brief instructions for a Christmas card in non-traditional colours.

It will look equally charming in traditional colours if you colour the poinsettias red.
Create a square card base, 14,5x14,5 cm. 
Add a layer of silver mirror cardstock 14x14cm.
Create the textured layer by stencilling texture paste onto a white cardstock square of 13,5x13,5 cm. I used  the Crafters Companion holly jolly stencil set. While the texture paste is still wet, sprinkle WOW embossing powder white twinkle over. Shake off the excess powder and melt the embossing powder with a crafting heat gun. While you do this, the texture paste will pop up a bit, creating lovely dimension.
Adhere this layer to the card base.
Die cut Creative Expressions Jamie Rodgers rippled poinsettias from heavy cardstock - I used the white curious metal 300gsm that we stock in our online store. Colour the flowers with a dauber dabbed onto an ink pad, or use Creative Expressions gilding polish. Shape tge flowers using a ball tool.
Complete the flowers by layering 2 sets of petals and adding a flat-backed pearl in the centre of each.
Arrange flowers and dis-cut foliage on the card.
Thank you for visiting. Do take a minute to comment on this post.
Happy crafting, until next time.
