Countdown to Christmas 2021 #5

It’s time for project 5 in my Countdown to Christmas 2021 series and I’ve created this poinsettia Christmas Card.

Many of you will know that I love a poinsettia project for Christmas.

In fact, it has become tradition that there is a poinsettia project at my annual Special Christmas Cards Class.

This card uses a traditional Real Red and Old Olive colour combination.

For the background, I’ve used a Blending Brush to create a red area behind the poinsettia.

A couple of lengths of the pretty Gold Shimmer ribbon create the present effect. This then has a tag cut from the Tailor Made Tags dies, stamped with a sentiment from the Penguin Place Stamp Set. It’s attached at the outer end using Dimensionals.

The Poinsettia Dies provide the focal piece. These pieces are layered together in an offset way. Using Tear & Tape, this is stuck to the project.

Finally, a touch of Wink of Stella and a sequin from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack add some sparkle to the centre.

My final project for my recent Special Christmas Cards class uses the Poinsettia Dies.

It’s become tradition for me to include a Poinsettia project in this class, so this year couldn’t disappoint!

This stunning project is made in Real Red, Old Olive, and Very Vanilla, with Bumblebee flowers and Gold Foil Sheets.

The fabulous Poinsettia Dies not only cut, they emboss a beautiful pattern too.

Each section is firstly made up of two pieces. These are then layered together using Dimensionals to make the Poinsettia.Poinsettial Dies. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

The centre is filled with Metallic Pearls, there are handy little indentations that the pearls sit in perfectly.

Plus a few pearls are scattered around the poinsettia too.

All the projects in this class had a matching handmade box to make too. This one has an Old Olive base and Real Red top. I’ve decorated mine and the attendees were able to do the same with theirs too. Poinsettial Dies. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs
