Another Christmas card, and this time I’ve made a Foamiran poinsettia using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die. It was really easy to make so if you want a quick video of how I did it leave a comment and I’ll get one done if there’s enough interest.
I used the gorgeous Lemoncraft Christmas Carols paper pad again, I LOVE this pad. I used 0.6mm white Foamiran and heated each petal then pressed on to a Mould 104. It sounds faffy but it was really quick to do. Once I’d embossed them all I twised the ends and shaped the petals slightly. I adhered 2 of each layer together then popped a berry sprig in the centre together with a gold metal finding which I’ve had in my stash for years. I used some white flowers made using the Craft Passion Flowers set –06 and Craft Passion Flowers Set 03 dies.
I finished off the spray with some TH die cut leaves, gold berries, Scrapiniec Holly Branches laser cut chipboard, Wycinanka - Lacy Christmas - Stars - set of 3 (both painted with gold paint) and some gold twine.
I love how the poinsettia turned out. I added white glitter from The Range to give an icy look and added some mini polystyrene balls (also from The Range)
Those little white flowers fitted the bill perfectly
I love making Christmas cards, even though I’m not a fan of Christmas – it’s gotten way too commercial for me.
