Christmas Poinsettia

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs b

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.

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs eStep 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.

EK Gorman, Elizabeth Craft Designs lStep Nine:  Adhere the poinsettia to the card using some 3 dimensional tape so it pops up and hangs off the card.
