Pink Poinsettia

Hello everyone!! It's time for new inspiration for our current challenge at the Unstampabelles. Our current them is Anything goes with a twist to add flowers. Like I mentioned in my earlier post, I'm in the mode of making Christmas cards for the Caring Hearts Card drive :)

Here's what I made to inspire you:


I love wreaths. I wanted to make a pink Christmas card after seeing so many cards on Pinterest. So I went ahead and made a pink one for you. I hand drew and fuzzy cut the poinsettia (I cut 3 leaves in a layer and used 4 layers for this one). I used my MS pine branch punch to cut out the leaves. All the embellishments are pearls, half pearls and liquid pearl (I had this bottle for almost a year now and finally decided to use it). I used a twine (this one I bought it in India in Itsy Bitsy - almost 2 years ago :D) for the bow. A closer look at the wreath.


I used my border punch to make the fancy lacey border on the white panel. I used a light pink card base for this one, ti match with the wreath.

This is one of the cards for Caring Hearts Card Drive.

Hope you are inspired by this one. Do check out what other DT members have created at the Unstampabelles blog. You are sure to get inspired to make something!!
