The Merry Little Christmas November 2019 Challenge is live over on the challenge blog, and the theme is “Anything Goes”! For my project today, I used a collab set between Paper Rose x SSS called Poinsettia Border.
It was from this year’s Stamptember release at Simon Says Stamp. Sadly, it sold out shortly after I made this card. But, with a little bit of fancy masking work and fussy cutting, you can use any poinsettia set you already have to get the same look!
The marker colors I used are:
- Poinsettias: R20, R22, R29, YR31, Nuvo Aqua Shimmer in Midas Touch
- Mistletoe Leaves: G43, G46
- Mistletoe Berries: YR30
- Shadow: C1
The sentiment is from the same stamp set. Because the yellow cardstock was textured, I used Nuvo Hybrid Ink in Black Shadow and heat embossed with Nuvo Detail Powder in Jet Black. That way I could make sure the image was super black and covered properly.
After I die cut the edge of the poinsettias, I adhered the white cardstock with foam squares over the Basis black and Bazzill yellow layers below. The white space above the poinsettias looked a little plain, so I did a dot design with some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Mustard Gold.
It was a bonus that the Nuvo Drops, poinsettia centers, and yellow cardstock almost matched perfectly. Gorgeous, I tell ya.
Thanks for popping by to see my card for the Merry Little Christmas November 2019 Challenge! Now it’s your turn: head on back to the challenge and add your link! I’d love to see what you make :)
I also entered this card in the Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp :D
