Gold Poinsettia Christmas Card

  • Thinlits and Framelits create Gold Poinsettia card
  • Sneak peek from the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog
  • Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin BOGO - Aug 11-Oct 10 2016

Gold Poinsettia card using 4 different dies and no stamping

Stampin' Up! has a great punch, called Festive Flower Builder that creates wonderful poinsettias.  However, I've always wanted to create a more delicate looking poinsettia.  I found that the leaf from the May Flowers Framelits really does the trick!  This card is unique in that it requires no stamping, but uses four different Stampin' Up! dies. 








Above is a close up of the poinsettia. Full size card is pictured below. I cut eight May Flowers Framelit leaves and positioned them on a 3/4 " circle with hot glue.  You'll need to lay down a layer of hot glue and position the first 4 leaves and then lay down a layer of hot glue on top of the centers of the first four leaves and position the next 4 leaves.  Using Gold foil paper, you are able to bend and mold the shapes of the leaves to get a more realistic look.



Gold Poinsettia using Stampin' Up! Thinlits and Framelits


I added a large gold enamel to the center to finish off the Poinsettia and added a couple more gold enamels for added interested.  I cut two banners using the Banners Framelits.  One in Gold foil and the other in Whisper White.  The Whisper White banner is embossed with the new Pine Bough Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, a sneak peek at one of the new products available in the Holiday Catalog September 1.  The word Peace is also cut from the Gold foil paper using the Christmas Greeting Thinlits.


Its so strange how some cards come together so quickly and make you so happy and others cause you to struggle for hours and still don't hit the right creative mark.  This is one of the easy ones!


Stamps: None
Ink: None
Paper: Heavy Whisper White,  Gold Foil Sheets

Accessories and tools:  Gold Enamel Shapes, Christmas Greeting Thinlits, May Flowers Framelits (leaf), Botanical Builder Framelits (modified to simulate pine needles), Banner Framelits, Pine Bough Textured Impressions Embossing Folder




A few more details.  I wanted something that looked like pine needles in addition to the new Pine Bough Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (Available Sept 1).  I found the "fern" die from the Botanical Builders Framelits can quickly be modified to look like pine needles by using your paper snips to make the fern leaves a bit narrower.
