Poinsettia card created with Poinsettia Dies, Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper, and Joy Dies


Thanks for joining us today for the November Color Fusers blog hop!  This month we have a traditional holiday color challenge.



With these colors, I could not resist making a gorgeous poinsettia with the Poinsettia Dies.  After die cutting the petals, I spritzed them with a mixture of Frost White Shimmer Paint and rubbing alcohol in a Stampin’ Spritzer.  The leaves were curled with a Bone Folder to create lots of dimension.  The poinsettia is then layered on beautiful Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper.  It is shimmery in person, and sooo pretty!



The sentiment is cut from Bumblebee Cardstock using the Joy Dies.  I adhered the cardstock to a Foam Adhesive Sheet before die cutting to create more dimension.  These dies are perfect for creating layered words, and I love them!
