Birch Press Design – Merry Christmas Poinsettia

Hello there! I’m over on the Birch Press Design blog today and I’ve decided to try and turn the Dahlia Mini Frame layers into a poinsettia. I think it turned out really pretty and had fun creating this simple card.

After cutting the dahlia layers from white I cut the flower from red glitter and the center from gold glitter cardstocks. I pulled out some alcohol pearl inks and created a serene blue background for my flower and let it dry. I glued the bottom layer of the dahlia mini frame to the alcohol inked background and then treated the glitter pieces like a puzzle and glued them all in place with liquid glue. Then I adhered the other layers on top and added foam tape to the back.

I cut a white panel to 4×5.25 and used my score board to add some embossed details 1/4 inch in from each side. This panel is popped up with foam tape on a white card base. Then I tied twine around the dahlia panel and popped it in place too. Last, I heat embossed a sentiment banner from the Christmas Ornament and Labels set and used liquid glue to attach it.

I just love the texture combination between the layers, glitter cardstock and the alcohol pearl ink. They play off each other nicely and add so much interest to a simple card design.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
