Poinsettia Christmas

 I am back with another Christmas card to share using a die cut Poinsettia done using alcohol inks, as is the background. This card is all about the layers, yet there is enough white to keep a clean balance.

I used the purple, pinks and greens for the background which I did on a 5x7 piece of Yupo so I could get the background and the flower cut out. The background panel is die cut using my wonky rectangles, then matted with a bright pink cardstock and attached to the white base. I die cut the frame from the white and attached directly on the background panel, the die cut the flower petals using the green parts then the pink parts of the Yupo piece. I also added a petal layer using white glitter cardstock. 
 I finished with the Merry cut in silver glitter cardstock, and the Christmas stamped in the purple and die cut, then attached using foam tape. And finally, a crystal gem for the flower centre.
I very much like the results, and I think the recipient will as well.

Sweet Kia, I had to come to your site after seeing this awesome card on SCS. The card is striking with the beautiful background and fantastic purple and white poinsettia. I love the card, Kia! Awe, it is also good to get to see the pic of CC. I hope she is doing well! Hugs!
