Stampin' Up! Poinsettia Petals for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop


Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop. This week we have a sketch challenge. If this is your first time here, welcome! If not, welcome back!! Either way, you're in for a treat!!! I used the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set to create my card. 

Here's the sketch...
As you can see, I flipped the sketch on its side. My card base is Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I cut a piece of Basic White (5 3/8" x 4 1/8") and stamped the sentiment from Poinsettia Petals in Evening Evergreen. Then I ran the panel through my embossing machine using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.

Next I cut a piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock (5" x 2 3/4") and ran it through my machine using the Evergreen Forest 3D EF. I adhered that to the card front with liquid glue. Then I cut a piece of DSP (2" x 3 3/4") from the Tidings of Christmas series. I adhered that with liquid glue as well.

My embellishments consist of three different sized Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels and a bow made from the Evening Evergreen 3/8" Open Weave Ribbon.

For the inside, I stamped the sentiment in Evening Evergreen and the image in Cherry Cobbler. I used my Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write marker to color the berries. I punched the corners with the Detailed Trio Punch and adhered it to the card base with liquid glue.
