Today I wanted to create a masculine Christmas Card using Susan's Poinsettia die set from Spellbinders. Other die sets used are shown in bold print.
This is a 6-inch square card. I used a piece of plaid design paper from my stash for the background.
On the upper right side, I used the Spellbinders Essential Squares die set to die cut the two white squares. In the center of the smaller square I used one of the stamps from Susan's Holiday Quotes stamp set. Both squares were attached using dimensional tape.
Using the Poinsettia die set, three poinsettia were created. Susan's white Specialty card stock from Spellbinders was used and her Deluxe Tool Kit was used for shaping them. The glue used is Bearly Art Glue. Green Nuvo Drops, Prills and Pollen was used for the bracts.
The Foliage & Ladybug die set was used for the Eucalyptus leaves. The Pinecone and Evergreen Bough die set was used for the evergreen boughs and the pinecone. Snow was added to the evergreen boughs and clusters of red berries. The berries were created using bean bag styrofoam balls that were painted red with acrylic paint.
The Garden Lantern die set includes a candle. The candle was die cut using a piece of card stock from the DCWV Mercury Glass Cardstock Pad.
I love how realistic the poinsettia and pinecones look using Susan's die sets. For help in knowing how to assemble Susan's flowers, you can watch her Spellbinder YouTube Videos or also get instruction on her Facebook Garden Club Live Videos.
I have links for products used and a lot of other products I use below.
