Poinsettia in Blue
Earlier this week, I posted a blue Poinsettia card and today I want to show you another stunning card using blue as the colour palette. You can see the original card here.
What’s different about this Poinsettia Petals card is that the poinsettia is made from the matching dies called, of course, Poinsettia Dies. These dies are stunning because they not only cut out shapes but also emboss them. And the Poinsettia dies have added die pieces (separate from the Stamp Set) like the sprig on this card. The sprig, on this card, is made using the new Balmy Blue Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper. You can see the complete supply list for this card below at the end of this post.
The colours on this card are Balmy Blue, Night of Navy and Whisper White. I love this colour combination for Christmas cards as it crisp and elegant.
One of the products to note on this card is the luscious Plush Poinsettia Specialty Paper. This paper has flocked designs (think Velvet texture) on white vellum. It is simply stunning! It comes in a package of six 12″ x 12″ designs (2 sheets each of 3 different designs).
A tip to maximize paper like this is to cut it into 4″ x 3″ pieces (or anything that divides into 12 evenly) so you don’t waste any of it. You only need a small portion of this special paper on the card to give the luxurious feel of the paper.
Also on this card is the Beaded Pearls embellishments. They are a trio of white pearls set on a silver base with some additional little metallic dots on them. They are gorgeous and fit this big flower perfectly.
