Stampin' Up Poinsettia Petals Merry Christmas Card


Today's card is my first Christmas card of the year!  It is never too early start.  I used the sketch from this weeks Sunday Stamper Challenge as inspiration.

I started out making poinsettia with Stampin' Up Poinsettia Dies with Cherry Cobbler card stock.  I created 2 flowers with 3 layers each.  I used my Take A Pick Tool to curl each petal giving the flowers more dimension.  

I layered Stampin' Up Tidings of Christmas DSP with a panel of Soft Succulent card stock.  I adhered the layers to a Evening Evergreen base.  

I stamped the sentiment from SU Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set with Evening Evergreen ink on Basic White card stock.  I adhered it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

I cut leaves from Evening Evergreen card stock and sprigs from Stampin' Up Gold and Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper.  

I adhered the flowers, leaves and sprigs to the card front with liquid adhesive.  

I finished the card front off with 3 Stampin' Up Metallic Pearls. 
The inside is a panel of Basic White.  I stamped the flower in the corner and the sentiment with Cherry Cobbler ink.  I stamped the pine leaf with Evening Evergreen.
