Beautiful Poinsettia Christmas Greeting

Dry embossing, die cuts, punches, foil paper, ribbon and a cool card design! All this going on with this one little card!

And while you might think the poinsettia is a rubber stamp I coloured, it’s not! I cut it from a sheet of my Poinsettia Place designer series paper.

My Top 6 Reasons to Use Patterned Papers in Card Making

Here are my number one reasons why I love to pull out my packages of Stampin’ Up!’s designer series papers to create with:

  • Different colour combinations – designed by artists so you know your projects will be spectacular!
  • Easy to cut images – so you can create focal points (like my poinsettia) with a pair of scissors and some fussy cutting.
  • A mix of large and smaller patterns – so you can have options to be bold or more subdued in your crafting
  • Full coordination between all 12 designs – so you can mix and match designs for quicker crafting
  • All the colours are listed on the back – so you won’t make colour matching “oopsies”!
  • Saves time! – all the guesswork is removed so you have more time for creating!

Let’s see the entire set of Poinsettia Place designer series paper.

Jo’s Design Tips

  • emboss the entire background with the Wrapped in Texture embossing folder before cutting your smaller strip
  • elevate your card with Foam Adhesive Strips
  • frame your punched greeting with a second coloured punch you cut in half
  • add lots of die cut and punched ‘foliage’ behind the poinsettia for interest
