Hello Studio Katia fans! I’m so excited to be joining you today with a card I’ve made using the Merry Poinsettia stamp/die set! I recently purchased a 6×6 paper pad that was full of green and blue Christmas papers and I have to admit, it’s influencing the cards I’ve made this week. I so loved that green gingham, I decided to try a non-traditional poinsettia for something different.
I cut out my 5×5 square card base, then white heat embossed my floral images and cut them out with matching dies. I used various shades of blue distress inks to color them. Once dried, I splattered them with white acrylic paint cut 50/50 with water. I cut my leaves out of an apple green cardstock and used a moss colored ink to shade them, then did a water splatter on them for some interest.
I placed my florals around the middle sized die in the Stitched Nested Creative Squares set, then glued it all down. I die cut the Merry from gold cardstock, then placed it within the poinsettias. Lastly I added some Gold Foil Confetti to add a little extra shine!
Thanks SO MUCH for joining me today, I hope you’ve enjoyed my project and it will inspire you while making your Christmas cards!
