MFT October Release Countdown Day 3

We're halfway to My Favorite Things October Release!
All new products will go on sale Tuesday, October 9th at 10AM EST in the MFT Store.

Today I'm sharing a project using the new Perfect Poinsettia Die-namics. These
dies create a big, bold, beautiful poinsettia that takes center stage on your card.

I die cut two smaller floral petals and one large one from red card stock then adhered
them together to form a perfect poinsettia. The center stamen was cut twice from light
green card stock and adhered to the center of the flower. The flower was topped off
with a green center that was colored with Copics for a bit of dimension.

Three leaves were cut from green card stock and inked lightly with Distress inks.
Black and white striped paper was cut to fit the front of a white card base and a
4" by 5.25" panel was adhered over it. I stamped the sentiment on the panel and
adhered the poinsettia and leaves on the card.

  1. Love this classic design, Donna! Your ink blending brings out all the texture in the Poinsettia and I love the diagonal stripes on the border...such a lovely Christmas card!

  2. Gorgeous Poinsettia, Donna! Love all the details adding dimension and interest - styling the petals, inking the leaves, and coloring the stamen with Copic. The striped border makes the card look modern and sharp!
