Red Poinsettia Card

The quintessential holiday flower teams up with green and gold in today’s red poinsettia card.  It’s time to play at Festive Friday – Home of the Inspo List!

For this week’s challenge, we are inspired by Christmas Jumper Day. Remember, at Festive Friday you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion. Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project. I used red, green gold and ribbon on my card this week. I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

The Stampin’ Schach’s Design Tips

Nothing says “Classic Christmas” than a red poinsettia! The one on today’s red poinsettia card happens to be a rich confection of Cherry Cobbler and gold.  This stunning focal point was a breeze to create with the Poinsettia Petals stamp set and Poinsettia dies from the Annual Catalog.  Embellishments were quite simple, really. A cluster of gold metallic pearls for the center of the flower, and a double bow created from Cherry Cobbler and Gold ribbon.
