Got this idea in my head for using the Art Philosophy cartridge to make some poinsettia flowers. Nothing says Christmas to me more than bright red poinsettias and I love red with bright white, like the white you get when you use our White Daisy cardstock, so here are a couple I came up with today to share with you.
The poinsettia was cut at 2 1/2" with the star flower in cranberry cardstock and I used the same flower for the leaves, simply cutting off the petals, and used New England Ivy. I used a stylus to score the lines for the leaves, then lightly sanded for definition. A stylus was used on the petals of the flowers to give some texture and top flower has a small petal shape cut in the center of each petal that is raised slightly. A small 3/4" star flower was cut in New England Ivy and a dot of glue holds down some homemade flowersoft, made by rolling a piece of non ctmh yellow cardstock and grating it with a very fine grater. The sentiment is a cuttlebug embossing folder and I scored a rectangle with 3 straight lines all around with a scor pal. These were both pop dotted and then adhered to a cuttlebug folder embossed card front.
Used cuttlebug embossing folders to do the top and bottom borders and the main image. Same poinsettia as the first one cut just a touch smaller at 2 1/4". Click on the pictures to enlarge and see detail closer. Let me know what you think of my poinsettias?
