Stylish Poinsettias

What would Christmas be without a gorgeous poinsettia to complete your holiday decor!  Come to my Christmas Card SAS later this month to make your own stunning Poinsettia Christmas cards!  You can choose which style you would like to make -- the one on the left uses the Blossom Petals Punch to punch out the petals, and the one on the right uses the five petal flower punch -- punch two of them and layer them together to create this stunning little poinsettia.  Of course, I added a small silver glitter paper punch to the centers using one of the Itty Bitty punch pack punches and some rhinestones colored red with my trusty red Sharpie for the centers.  Just adds that little extra bling.  That gorgeous black flocked background is again from the Mocha Morning Specialties paper pack.  Isn't it so elegant! Hard to see in this photo, but I took a little Champagne shimmer paint on a sponge dauber and rubbed it over the embossed background to give the card a beautiful sparkly shimmer on the embossed pattern.
