Inspired Poinsettia in Blues and Greens

Hello!  I'm so excited to be joining you today with a card I've made using the Merry Poinsettia stamp/die set! I recently purchased a 6x6 paper pad called Alpine by Authentique.  It's full of green and blue Christmas papers and I have to admit, it's influencing the cards I've made this week.  I so loved that green gingham, I decided to try a non-traditional poinsettia for something different.

I cut out my 5x5 square card base. then white heat embossed my floral images and cut them out with matching dies. I used various shades of blue distress inks to color them.  Once dried, I splattered them with white acrylic paint cut 50/50 with water.  I cut my leaves out of a apple green cardstock and used a moss colored ink to shade them, then did a water splatter on them for some interest.

I place my floral around the middle sized die in the Stitched Nested Creative Squares set, then glued it all down.  I die cut the Merry from gold cardstock, then placed it within the poinsettias. Lastly I added some Gold Foil Confetti to add a little extra shine!

Thanks SO MUCH for joining me today, I hope you've enjoyed my project and it will inspire you while making your christmas cards!
