Holly Poinsettia Card
I wanted to make one last Christmas card before July is over and I think this is stunning. I created the card base and all the panels except the two in the center using my Scalloped Square XL Stackers and the coordinating Silver Square Stackers dies. On the base of the card I created a three petal holly using the medium size leaf from the Holly Leaves die.
Using the new Holly Leaves die , I have also created a wonderful poinsettia; just look at the veining on the petals. I die cut 5 of each size leaf from red card stock and 5 of the largest size from green card stock. Starting with a small circle of card stock as a base, I just layered my leaves to form the flower then added the green leaves as the last step. The beautiful paper is from Authentique. Finished size is 5.5 inches.
