Poinsettia flowers are very popular at Christmas time but the beautiful Amaryllis is also a favorite flower of many people during the holidays.
Today I have created a card with Picotee Amaryllis.
Susan's Garden Notes Amaryllis die set was used to die cut three flowers. The center of the petals were colored using PanPastels. The edge of the white petals was colored using a red marker. The flowers were shaped using Susan's Flower Tool Kit.
Use Susan's Garden Notes Whitepine Bough & Pine Cone die set to die cut 6 pine boughs to be placed behind the floral arrangement.
Use Susan's new Glass Hurricane & Candle die set to create the vase for the flower arrangement. The Glass Hurricane die was placed over a piece of the ModaScrap Wood Effect card stock. Only the top portion of the Hurricane die cut was used for the vase. Use a craft knife to cut an opening around the top edge, to add flowers inside the vase.
Use the Els van de Burgt Dotted Scallop Oval die set to die cut an oval and cut it in half to create a table top for the vase.
Use Els Beaded Circle Frame die set to die cut the largest circle, using white Soft Finish Card stock.
Use a piece of the new ModaScrap Xmas Vintage Card stock for the front of the 6-inch card.
Attach the Beaded Circle to the card front as shown and the partial Dotted Scallop Oval at the bottom. Attach the Vase at the bottom of the card -- add adhesive only around the edges of the vase so you can add the flowers and leaves down in the opening.
Arrange the bouquet by attaching the Whitepine Boughs down first then the flowers and then tuck in the flower leaves.
There are many different colors of Amaryllis. What is your favorite color?
