Directions for Pretty Poinsettia Curvy Card:

  • Die cut the 4 flower pieces for the poinsettia from Cherry Cobbler card stock using the inside embossing pieces. Die cut 2 large leaves and 1 small leaf using the inside embossing pieces from Garden Green card stock. Die cut 2 sprigs from white glitter paper.
  • Die cut 1 curve on the long side of the Plush Paper. To die cut the curve on the long side of the Cherry Cobbler card piece, align the Plush Paper near the bottom of the Cherry Cobbler and align curve die just under the Plush Paper curve and then die cut the curve on the Cherry Cobbler card piece. See Figure 1.

  • Fold the thick whisper white card base in 1/2. Poke all holes out of curvy layers and then adhere the Cherry Cobbler piece to the card base and then the Plush paper piece on top of the Cherry Cobbler.
  • Take a chalk marker and trace the outside edges of the 4 poinsettia flower pieces and the 3 green leaves. Apply Wink of Stella to all pieces.
  • Begin to gently fold the leaves of the flower in 1/2 and upward, as shown in figure 2.

  • Adhere leaves and sprigs, by applying adhesive to bottom 1/2 of leaf/sprig.
  • Stamp sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink.
