I had such a good time making poinsettias with my Darice die set, that I made several different cards with this die-cut as the focus.
On this card you can see that I have used the leaf die that came with the die set. I've dry-embossed and then inked the veins on the leaves, as well. Isn't it pretty?
You can also see here that I've once again used some gold micro beads for my center (held in place with some Glossy Accents).
My sentiment is a stamp one from the $1.50 bin at Michaels. I colored the leaves and added some berries with my red Viva Décor Pearl Pen.
A simple strip of matted plaid DSP decorates the inside.
Here's a little closer look at this poinsettia. You can really see the embossing on the flower center in this pic.
Here's another look at the sparkle on this pretty flower.
Well that's enough poinsettias for awhile, don't you think? I'll definitely be using this die set again next year, though. It's such a nice size and SO easy to use. It was also very inexpensive. You can find it here at Consumer Crafts.
I commend you if you made it through all my poinsettia cards to the end of this post. Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
