I have been so busy getting ready for Christmas. The tree and all the decorations are up, but I still have lots of baking I want to get done. My whole family will be coming for a family reunion this year and I am trying to get lots of things ready before they start arriving next week. I have also been working on other projects that will be posted later. I will have a special post next Sunday I don't think you will want to miss.
This card was inspired by a "leftover" from another project I am working on. The colored frame behind the poinsettia is the die cut left after die cutting the Susan's Garden 1 7/8" Grid Works squares that will be used on another project. I think the frame left from around the squares makes a perfect window that I could not waste. Behind the Grid Works Frame, I added the Poppy Stamps, "Diamond Background" die cut.
The beautiful poinsettia was die cut using the Susan's Garden Poinsettia dies. The flower was die cut using red card stock. The petals were shaped using the Susan's Garden Flower Tool Kit. On the tips of the stamens, I used both the green and yellow, Susan's Garden Viva Decor Paper Pens. Behind the poinsettia I placed some Poppy Stamps Delicate Fern, Poppy Stamps Meadow Leaf, and Impression Obsession Pine Branches, for filler. I love to add birds to my creations. Isn't that fat little bird, behind the poinsettia, cute! It is an Impression Obsession Bird. It was stamped on white card stock and colored with Distress Ink. It is an easy stamped image to cut out and mount with a Pop Up Glue Dot. The poinsettia was also attached with a Pop Up Glue Dot.
