Poinsettias with Candle


Today I designed another Christmas card using Susan's Garden Poinsettia dies.  

This is a 6"x6" card.  I used the ECD Pop It Ups - Chicken Wire die for the background.  I left the die cut in the piece of card stock and backed it with a piece of glitter card stock I created by adding Soft Green Silk Microfine Glitter to a piece of ECD Double Sided Adhesive.  It was attached behind the die cut with 6mm Double Sided Adhesive.  The Candle was die cut using white card stock.  The drip part and the flames were die cut using white card stock attached to double sided adhesive so I could add Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter.  The three candle flame die cuts were then colored with Copic markers and glued together.  

Three Susan's Garden Poinsettias were made, then attached over Susan's Garden Notes Whitepine Boughs.  Four Pinecones created with Susan's Garden Notes Whitepine Boughs & Pine Cone dies were added.  

At the top of the card, I used another piece of the 6mm Double Sided Adhesive to create a border.  Soft Green Silk Microfine Glitter was added to the tape.  The ECD Merry Christmas die was used for the Sentiment.  It was also cut out with the Double Sided Adhesive and True Red Silk Microfine Glitter added. 

Have a nice weekend!

Fabulous card Selma, I have the pine cone die too but have not used it yet as I cannot get yes glue here in the UK without paying a fortune for it? Is there anything else you used to make the pine cones?

Sue, I checked with Susan and she said you can use clear bathroom caulk if you don't have YES Glue. Have fun creating your pine cones!

Love all the dimensional work on this beautiful card. It's never too early to work on Christmas/holiday cards! If I were to receive a card like this, it would be on display all year round. Well done!
