Believe Purple Poinsettias



Poinsettias do not come in purple, but they look so pretty with the black  A Way With Words - Believe die cut sentiment and Circles die cut background.

This is a 6"x6" card.  There are three white layers, each one slightly smaller than the one below it, that were attached with dimensional tape.  The Garden Notes Poinsettias were die cut using white card stock and the petals were sponged with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.  The Garden Notes Whitepine Boughs were die cut using dark green card stock.  The poinsettias were shaped using Susan's Flower Tool Kit.

The Elizabeth Craft Designs Circles die cut makes a very pretty background for the poinsettias.  It was die cut using black card stock that had Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape on the back, then attached to the top of the card.  The poinsettias were attached with dimensional glue dots and the pine boughs glued below the flowers.

The Quietfire - A Way With Words - Believe was die cut using black card stock that had a piece of Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back.  I especially love using the double sided adhesive tape when die cutting intricate designs, such as the A Way With Words die cuts, because it is so easy to attach them solidly  to the card.

The following products can be purchased from Elizabeth Craft Designs:
