Poinsettia Christmas card


I matt and layered my 8x8in white card with red and gold card. I cut a piece of white card to size then cut the oval out of it using a Presscut die. I then embossed the white card with an Embossalicious embossing folder. I cut a red oval ring with two oval dies and added that to the centre of the cut oval. The white oval with include a personalised sentiment closer to Christmas.

I have die cut the poinsettia with Sue Wilson dies and the holly flourish with a Cheery Lynn die and then arranged them around the oval. I completed my card with flat backed pearls
