A Poinsettia Card Perfect for the Holidays

Today I'm playing along with Tic Tac Toe Challenge #519 on The Papers Players with my Poinsettia card.  I used the Red Velvet Paper to make the Poinsettia.  I love the poinsettia dies - they cut and emboss all on one step.

For this challenge I chose the top row - Patterned Paper, Die Cut and Embossing.


  1. Cut Real Red cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Soft Suede cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Cut Very Vanilla cardstock 3 3/4" x 5" and emboss using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder
  4. Adhere to the Soft Suede cardstock using Stampin' Seal.
  5. Adhere to the card base using Stampin' Seal.
  6. Cut Designer Series Paper 1 1/4" x 3 3/4" and adhere across the middle of the embossed cardstock using Stampin' Seal.
  7. Cut out 3 petals from Red Velvet Paper using dies.
  8. Fold the petals up slightly and put flower together using Dimensionals.
  9. Cut 2 large leaves and 1 smaller leaf from Mossy Meadow cardstock
  10. Adhere to the back of the flower using Glue Dots.
  11. Adhere 2 gold leaves from Forever Gold Laser Cuts using Glue Dots.
  12. Wrap gold twine around palm of hand about 4 times.  Pinch in the middle and adhere to the card base using Snail.
  13. Adhere flower to the card base using Dimensionals over the twine
  14. Cut Very Vanilla cardstock 1" x 2" and stamp sentiment using Real Red ink.
  15. Punch end using Banners Take a Pick Punch. 
  16. Adhere to flower - tucked under petal using a Glue Dot.
  17. Cut Very Vanilla cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  18. Stamp sentiment using Real Red ink
  19. Adhere to the inside of the card using Stampin' Seal.
