White Poinsettia



I'm still working on Christmas cards to get a jump on the season as it rapidly approaches. I made a simple card with red and white cardstock, using a SB poinsettia die, along with a MFT fishtail banner die. The background was embossed with a SU! petals a'plenty ef, and the sentiment is from a SU! stamp set called "Versatile Christmas." The horizontal border was done with a retired SU! scalloped border punch. I curled the petals of the poinsettia around a pencil for some dimension and popped up the bottom petals on foam tape. I added a red gemstone to the center for the finishing touch.

I'm sharing this with the Happy Little Stampers August Christmas challenge, which is anything goes - with an optional twist of "poinsettia."

Thanks for checking in and I hope you have a fantastic day!

Hi Carol! I have been remiss in visiting but I wanted to tell you how gorgeous your card is! The white poinsettia is stunning! May I ask what SB stands for? I may have to have that die!

Wow! I love the way the white takes over on the flower, and the red seems to be the undertone. Gorgeous!

This white poinsettia is just gorgous and pops very well on the red banner! Lovely embossing and scalloped border! Definitely it's an elegant Christmas card!
