Elegant Poinsettia Card

Using the beautiful pre-coloured Christmas Poinsettia by Sparkle N Sprinkle, I created this card.

I stitched a border around to showcase this gorgeous flower.
I cut out the poinsettia 3 times and fussy cut 3 different layers. By adhering each layer to each other with foam squares, I was able to create beautiful dimension on my flower.
All that was left was to add some gems and adhere it to a 5.5" x 5.5" (when folded) cherry red card stock base from GinaK.

On the inside, I printed the sentiment that comes with the Poinsettia flower set. This is an awesome image set. It comes with a pre-coloured image, a non-coloured image and a couple of sentiments. To add a little colour to the inside, I stamped the holly and berries twice and coloured them with copic markers.
