Poinsettia Petals Happy Holidays Card



Hi friends! Only a couple more days until Christmas! If you STILL needed to whip up a Christmas card or two, here's a great layout for you! This card is simple, quick and easy - and it's a fabulous design that you can use all year long, just by changing the colours and embellishments!

Measurement:

  • Thick Whisper White: 5 ½” x 8 ½” scored at 4 ¼”

  • Whisper White: 4” x 5 ¼” embossed with the Winter Snow embossing folder and scrap for greeting

  • Misty Moonlight: 3” x 4 ½”

  • Vellum: 2 ¼” x 3 ½”

  • Old Olive: scrap

  • DSP: 2 ¾” x 4 ¼” cut with the stitched rectangle that measures 2 5/8” x 4”

  • Linen Thread: about 20”

Instructions:

  1. Stamp two of the smaller leaves using old olive onto the old olive card stock and die cut with coordinating die.

  2. Stamp Happy Holidays using memento ink onto the scrap of whisper white and trim down as needed.

  3. Add the embossed white card stock to the center of the card front.

  4. Add the dsp to the center of the misty moonlight cardstock and the vellum to the center of that. Note: add your adhesive under where you will be adding your leaves so that you can’t see it.

  5. Wrap the linen thread around the misty moonlight layers twice and tie a knot. Add the bell and then finish it off with a bow.

  6. Add the layers to the card front.

  7. Flag the end of the greeting. Add a bit of adhesive and tuck it under the bow.

  8. Attach the two leaves together and then adhere them to the card.
