#912 – Poinsettia for non-Christmas card

Hello and welcome! I made this card inspired by a few challenges.. and also the fact that I made a new purchase in December which I was itching to put to good use! ๐Ÿ™‚

I first die cut the poinsettia using Altenew Poinsettia 3D dies, watercolored them using distress inks and adhered them. Then I started with the rest of the card. I embossed a card panel using We R Memory Keepers Geometry embossing folder and adhered it over my card base.

I then adhered two strips of washi tape, one with grey stripes and another which was an antique silver-like over scrap cardstock, trimmed it and adhered it over the embossed piece. I also adhered the sentiment, from Avery Elle Petals & Stems stamp set, trimmed it, then foam mounted it on the card. I finally adhered the poinsettia. Then I added a few pieces of silver and white dots of Nuvo crystal drops for embellishing.

And that’s my card. I don’t remember making a quicker and easier card than this! Fun too! ๐Ÿ™‚
