Elegant Poinsettia Card

 

Susan's Garden Notes Poinsettia's help you create beautiful Christmas cards!  I have shown you these poinsettias in red and non-traditional purple; today I want to show you how pretty they are in white, to create elegant cards.  I lightly sponged Susan's light green Pan Pastels at the base of the petals before assembling.  The leaves were sponged green with a hint of red.  Behind the poinsettias, I added a few pieces of Susan's Garden Notes Whitepine Boughs.  The gold berries were created with the ECD Berry Branch.  I die cut the branch using shiny gold card stock then glued on gold beads.  This helped to tie in with the beautiful shiny gold Quietfire Season's Greeting sentiment.  

This is a 6"x6" card.  There is a slightly smaller piece of card stock that was attached with dimensional tape.  Another 5" square was cut for the Poinsettia arrangement and also attached with dimensional tape.  Elizabeth Craft gold border and corner stickers were used to frame this pretty arrangement.

Els announced on Facebook that Susan's new dies will start shipping soon.  I hope you are following Elizabeth Craft Designs on Facebook to see all the beautiful cards that are being posted and to see the many specials offered.
