This is not my original design. I wanted to clarify that right off! I CASE'd a card by Paula Dobson found here. I loved the simple elegance of her design. I only made small changes and that was to add glitter (naturally!) and use a different mat color and sentiment.
I stamped the large poinsettia from Joyful Christmas by Stampin' Up over the white strip and the Pinefeather card base at the same time. It left a small gap between the pieces due to the cardstock thickness, but that was easily covered by the black cardstock mat.
I colored the flower with Copic markers and added Golden Rod Stickles to the stamens. Because. Glitter. Sparkle. Glitter is a necessary element for Christmas. lol I was thinking of all the silk poinsettias in the craft stores. Very few come without glitter. :)
I used a large Joy sentiment from Merry Wishes by Verve Stamps. I love the flourish-y font. Then it was just a simple matter of gluing everything together! I may make a few more of these to have on hand for Christmas cards because it's perfect for mailing.
