It is that time of month again that when the design team rallies together and around a theme over at Elizabeth Craft Design. This month we are celebrating “A Floral Christmas” and to get in on the fun, I pulled out the new stamp set Poinsettia Stamp set, because what is more Christmas than poinsettias.
Step One: Trim a piece of 85lb White Soft Finish cardstock, a piece of 100lb White Soft Finish Cardstock, and a piece of True Green Soft Finish cardstock to 4.25x.5 inches.
Step Two: Stamp out the large poinsettia from the Poinsettia stamp set several times onto a piece of 85lb White Soft Finish cardstock using black copic friendly ink. Then do the same things with the small poinsettia stamp.
Step Three: Color the poinsettias in with copic markers. I decided that my background would be black and white and colored it such.
Step Four: Stamp the large poinsettia onto a piece of 100lb White Soft Finish Cardstock.
Step Five: Color in the focal image with copic markers. I colored this image in with vivid color.
Step Six: Die cut out the flower using the coordinating Poinsettia die set.
Step Seven: Adhere the green cardstock to an A2 card frame. Trim the background cardstock to 4×5.25 inches and adhere it to the card frame, centering it on the green cardstock.
Step Eight: Using scrapes of True Green Soft Finish Cardstock, trim .25 inches and adhere it to the background.
Step Nine: Adhere the poinsettia to the card using some 3 dimensional tape so it pops up and hangs off the card.
Step Ten: Using another scrap of True Green cardstock, stamp a sentiment on it using the Classic Christmas Sentiment stamp set. Adhere inside the card. Stamp the poinsettia onto the corner of the card.
