Stampin' Up! Poinsettia Petals Holiday Card

I'm holding off on my Mystery Monday card until tomorrow because my teammate, Karen Ksenzakovic, made a card last week and I wanted to give it a go. She said it was easy peasy and quick. I wasn't sure about it but I followed her instructions and here is my end result using the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set and matching Poinsettia Dies. You might even need to wear your sunglasses at night! (You're welcome, Mary...lol!!)


Quite an unusual color for a Christmas card, yes? It's one of the 2020 - 2022 In Colors, Magenta Madness, and I have used very little of it. I chose this color for a color challenge. However, when I went back to the Just Add Ink Color Challenge #529, there was a color missing in action!


It's quite obvious Misty Moonlight was MIA! I didn't want to remake the card so I just got out my Light and Dark Misty Moonlight Blends and colored the poinsettia and gave it a Misty Moonlight pearl center! Hey, if you're gonna have a pink Christmas card, you might as well have a blue poinsettia, right? I'm also entering my card in Pammie's Inky Pinkies ATG Challenge #2044. I have found a new challenge to me: Creations In Pink #27. My card definitely qualifies for that!


I thought about removing the flower and stamping it in Misty Moonlight but I didn't want to rip the Winter Snow embossed piece by pulling off the Stampin' Dimensionals. Coloring was the best way for me to go. 

The sentiment is cut with a die from Ornate Frames and adhered with Dimensionals. The DSP is a strip from the Feels Like Frost 6 x 6 pack. My ribbon is the Silver Metallic Edge. It also comes with a Gold Edge. I wrapped it around the fold before I glued it shut to itself. I also added three smaller Pearl Basic Jewels.

The inside is clean and simple...


The envelope received a Feels Like Frost strip and a stamped poinsettia. My upline and friend, Mary, has a saying, "No nekkid envelopes." You'll hear me quote her often and she's right. It adds so much more thought in mailing it out.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you'll try this fold. It truly is easy peasy! Thanks, Karen K., for sharing your instructions.
