October Papertrey: Christmas Poinsettia
October 20, 2011
Back with another October Papertrey project. This time it's a card featuring Dawn's new Christmas Poinsettia set along with the coordinating dies.
I created a pocket card using the new Front and Center #1 die. After I diecut it from Spring Moss cardstock, I trimmed the sides so they were straight (instead of slanted), then just turned it upside down and folded the top up to create a pocket. The oval cut-out that is supposed to be the handle of the gift bag becomes a window...perfect place to stamp a sentiment.
Inside the pocket is a postcard-type card which I stamped with the Christmas Poinsettia images using Latte ink and Pure Poppy for the insides. You could add a letter or photo to the backside of the insert if you wanted. I created a pretty poinsettia flower using Vintage Cream felt along with the coordinating Christmas Poinsettia dies.
All supplies for today's card are linked with the thumbnails at the bottom of this post.
I also listed a few more things in my Etsy shop today. Click on the thumbnails to take you directly to the listing.
