velvet poinsettia

This is a simple card to make, but the poinsettia is the star of the show.  I used a Garden Green card base and a strip of Poinsettia Place DSP cut in a v at one side.  I used the Poinsettia Dies to cut the flowers out of Red Velvet paper, and used the same dies to emboss the veins on to the petals.  (See the photo below for a closeup of the stunning detail you get with these dies.)  The flower was layered together with foam dimensionals and finished with a Beaded Pearl embellishment in the centre.  Loops of Real Red Sheer Ribbon were glued to the back before the whole flower was fixed to the front of the card.  I used a sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals set with Real Red ink on Whisper White cardstock to finish off the look.
