Poinsettia Christmas Card | Melinda

Hello crafty friends,
Melinda here with you today, sharing another card creation featuring the amazing Shimmerz Paints. 
Shimmerz Paints Die Cut Stamp Card
My finished cardis a standard A2 top folding size. The base is plain white cardstock. In fact, everything started out with plain white cardstock! I cannot resist starting with plain white cardstock and watching what this amazing product range will do!

I created and cut my Poinsettia and border pieces.  I used Honeymoon Inklingz for the flower pieces and Freshly Minted Inklingz for the leaves. I really like the Inklingz range of products. They are so creamy and glide on the paper so smoothly. I added some pearls and a larger embellishment to the centers of my flowers.

For the little swirls, I  added some Puttin’ On The Glitz Pasteez. It gives them a soft sparkle without looking too overdone. You can also see the background here. I started with plain white cardstock, ran it through my embossing machine with an embossing folder and then painted it with some Angel’s Kiss and  Misty Morning Inklingz. I then spritzed it with my Jeni B Bleu Vibez. Love all the shimmer and interest it has.

Here’s a closer look at my sentiment. It comes from the new Love Never Melts Clear Stamp Set. I layered it onto my border.

Here’s just another look at the flowers. I cut them in two sizes so I would have one larger flower as my focal point and then have a couple of smaller ones nestled by it.

For a final touch, I added a bow from some of my seam binding ribbon. Seems these days all my cards have some of this….rofl!

Here is one last look at my completed card. I really like the way it turned out using some non-traditional Christmas colors!
