ID: MC Sept/14 - Heart Poinsettia Cards

Created: September 22, 2014

I was checking out the Memory Box swirl/scroll filigree die of a poinsettia that looked really nice... So I drew one to eCut, but put hearts in the petals instead. One of them uses solid shaped hearts and the other has a vein running through the hearts.

Both are available for free Heart Poinsettia (jpg & svg files)

I used many of the same elements on both cards.

the quilled leaf sprigs are something I taught my quilling group the other day how to make. Done on a standard quilling quilling comb using two strips of contrasting quill paper. It's similar to what can be made with the quill combs I make, but these have a rounder shape.

I'm using Xmas sentiment & quote stamps from Quietfire Design  (It Is Christmas), (Merry Christmas _ large MC) sentiments), (I will Honour), (Christmas is the Day - (narrow MC) set).


I scored & folded my white easel card. Adhered two pieces of white Ruche cardstock to the front panels.

Die cut two hearts (Spellbinders "Classic Hearts") from red textured cardstock. Adhered them to the front flap.

eCut 2 sizes of "Solid Heart Poinsettias" from white cardstock. While on the mat, painted with Distress "Barn Door" acrylic dauber. allowed to dry, then removed them. Adhered Sookwang tape to the back of the smaller poinsettia and then press it down on to some white tissue paper. Sprinkled with Gitter Ritz micro fine glitter "Regal Red". On the larger Poinsettia, applied Versamark and Ranger's Sticky Embossing Powder. Heat activated and then sprinkled with the red glitter, burnished and heat activated again to really set the glitter. Adhered the two elements together at the center and added the red heart rhinestone, then adhered to card.

Adhered my quilled leaf sprigs.

Stamped the quote onto white cardstock using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed, used the heart die, hand cutting around the inside shape. Sponged some red around the edges. Added the pearl flourishes.

On the floor of the easel I adhered Sari ribbon (Marmalade) using Sookwang tape. (there are 6 strips of ribbon...)

Stamped the sentiment on white cardstock with the black and clear embossed, sponged edges with the red and die cut with Spellbinders "Wonky Rectangles", then used the edge of the rectangle to narrow the die cut. Adhered to card floor with 3D foam tape.

I side folded my white card. Inked up a poinsettia stamp (Magenta) using Distress "Barn Door" and misted with water. Sponged the same red through a paper doily I had on my desk, then lightly sponged around the edges and white areas.

Stamped the quote with the black and clear embossed.

Adhered my poinsettia and quilled elements as above.

Adhered a piece of the Sari ribbon to the edge of the card using Sookwang tape and folding/overlapping the ribbon to the back.

On the inside, stamped the poinsettia again. Stamped the larger "Merry Christmas"  onto white cardstock, die cut with the Wonky Rectangles, sponged around the edges with the red, then edged it with the red pad and clear embossed the edges and adhered to card.

Added a piece of the red textured cardstock on the left side.
