U sing non traditional colors to create a Christmas card. features products from Stampin Up mini catalog July-December 2020
Cut Purple Posy cardstock 5.5 x 8.5".
Score at 4 1/4"
Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 5.5 x 4.25" ( we will trim it down for matting).
Using sponge, dauber or favorite blending tool,
blend Coastal cabana and Highland Heather inks. Start lightly building as you go. This took me several passes. I always start off paper.
when you are happy with the blend trim paper to 5.25x 4"
Using the Poinsettia Petals dies and your die-cutting machine cut petals from Purple Posy cardstock, leaves from Pool Party, and sprigs from Silver Foil.
Daub the edges of the leaves with Pool Party ink,
the Flower petals use Highland Heather ( purple posy if you still have the ink pad). Daub off first with the heather ( as it is darker) and use a light touch.
Assemble flower with multi purpose glue. Do not add embellishment center til end.
Cut a piece of the Plush Poinsettia DSP to 5.25x4"
Adhere this to the ink blended cardstock. ( They are the same size)
Sentiment: cut a strip of Purple Posy card stock 3/4" wide punch with Lovely Label Pick a punch.
Cut a strip 1/2" wide. also put through punch. Use a de-static tool, then stamp greeting in Highland Heather ink, immediately use clear embossing powder. tap off excess and Heat tool.
Layer smaller sentiment on purple piece . set aside
Putting it all together: Adher the Plush /Ink blended layer to Purple posy card base ( I used multi purpose glue). Adhere flower (don't adhere completely flat). Add glue to leaves and tuck under flower. Add glue to sprigs and tuck under flower between leaves. Add the Beaded Pearl Embellishment.
Add sentiment with Mini Dimensionals.
