Poinsettia Wreath Greeting Card

Standard

Hey there Paper Peeps! Ginny here to share a very country inspired Christmas greeting card I created with fabulous Cheery Lynn Designs Dies, festive patterned papers and perfectly coordinating ribbon trim. This card is an A2 size with a base of cranberry colored cardstock.

These scrumptious Poinsettias are a delight to make as they go together in a snap. I ran the die through to make 2 flowers…..but left the smaller two top layers off and created separate blooms with them so I got 4 flowers for the price of two hooray! After shaping them and assembling them I added a thin coat of a clear Stickle and sprinkled on a diamond dust glitter for a nearly iridescent look then popped in a pearly accent for the center.

To create a fuller wreath I cut two from the Joy To The World die and stacked them up. Additional bulk for the floral arrangement comes fromFlourish #13 leaves that are finished with a green Stickle for a little sparkle.

The background is created with a crisp white French Pastry Doily and the tiny berry clusters are a great finishing detail cut with the Holly Leaf die from plaid paper and topped off with red bling..

Okay that’s all for me. Wising all of you a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
