Materials You'll Need:

  • Poinsettia & Pinecones Stamp Set

  • Poinsettia & Pinecones Dies

  • Cat Eye Stencil

  • Black Cardstock

  • Silver Stencil Butter

  • Blue Crayola Colored Pencils

Let's Get Started!

Crafting the Poinsettia

Begin by selecting the large poinsettia stamp from the Poinsettia & Pinecones Stamp Set. I opted for a non-traditional color scheme, so I used various shades of blue Crayola colored pencils to color the poinsettia petals. Remember, there are no strict rules in crafting, so feel free to experiment with your favorite colors!

Creating the Background

For the background, take a piece of black cardstock and lay it flat. Place The Rabbit Hole Designs' Cat Eye Stencil over the cardstock. Now, here's where the magic happens: grab some silver Stencil Butter and gently apply it over the stencil. This will add a touch of whimsy and elegance to your card.

Heat Embossing the Sentiment

Choose a sentiment from the Poinsettia & Pinecones Stamp Set that resonates with your card's theme. Using clear embossing ink, stamp the sentiment onto your cardstock. Sprinkle white embossing powder over the inked sentiment, tap off any excess, and then use a heat embossing tool to melt the powder. This creates a beautiful raised and shiny effect that adds a professional touch to your card.

Assembling Your Card

Once you've colored your poinsettia, carefully die-cut it using the Poinsettia & Pinecones Dies. Arrange the poinsettia and any additional stamped images you'd like to include onto your cardstock. Adhere them using your favorite adhesive. I recommend using foam adhesive for a dimensional effect with the poinsettia.
